I made an error in my review. I stated that the rear ramp could be built up or down...not true. The kit only allows for ramp down. With the damaged parts I had in my review sample, I chose to build it ramp up as a fair amount of the internal framework would be visible and this is where the broken parts were located. I was going to leave them out and just button everything up. Only discovered that I couldn't build it ramp up when I got to that assembly step. I will make modifications to the parts/pieces so that I can. Sorry for any confusion this might have caused. Still a pretty impressive kit..."Q"

Great review Matthew! I'm so excited that I found this kit! It is my EXACT plane! I was plane captain of C2A 635 while I served at VAW 120 from 94-98.
Here's me, and my bro with my bird. I'm on the right.
