Meng.

Agreed. Better detail, more options, and only a few bucks more...….

I'd say Meng, but Meng doesn't have a two-seater (yet), so if you need the B, Trumpeter can supply.

Hi

 

I have both kits

 

I'd say Mend is nicer in the box. But from first rate talented friend modellers reports it seems Trumpeter is far easier to build and still for a very good result.

 

Regards

I would agree that the Meng kit is a bit of a difficult build as I am having a trying time with one at the moment.

I could have done without the two open avionics bays in the nose.

Meng--worst best kit I ever built.  I think I'm a good modeler but this one took me three (yes three) tries to get it  right. Tolerances are so tight that tube glue can make the build very difficult . Lots of tibs  and bits on the parts, some are locating pins, some are sprue attachments which can affect mating surfaces.  More later.

Paul, did that Genie and trailer come with the kit?

 

Just wondering if that Genie looks as good in person as in your photo.

Everything in the photos comes from the kit. That white odd looking thing is the Six Gun pack (upside down).
