Alright alright alright, I guess the artist used the Hobbyboss kit as a reference, hence the mistakes.

I an not putting the blame on him for an inaccurate rendition.

Love the sky and the clouds though.

I am sure his other works are just fine.

I'm all for constructive criticism of the kits -- how else would we know if they're accurate? -- but this strikes me as venturing into needless rudeness. It's a painting, it's not the model. 

thanks for the comment...well he just might have some reasons for what he wrotte...i used exact data from a photograph from the same squadron and  it can be seen bellow...!!! Have a nice day!!!

I have to agree with my learned friend here. That was totally uncalled for. Constructive criticism is one thing, rubbishing someone's work is another thing entirely.

also thank you my friend...well he mentioned that Fujimi is the winner anyway..so propably he works for Fujimi and all the rest is crap😁...all the best!!!

I picked one up on discount and actually it looks quite good. The retracted slats don't bother me much because I was planning to make it as a Blue Angels bird - Can anyone recommend aftermarket decals for one of these?

I believe that the great contribution of Hobbyboss is the Lade Jessie decals, do you know how is the cost in ebay of the Fujimi kit with that decals? (if you have the luck to discover someone)

last time that I discover one in an auction it was sold to more than $70.

I would like to know if the Hobbyboss decals are correct in shape and colors.

Perhaps the RoG Italeri rebox is worth hunting down, decals look alright:
