If I saw this Monogram kit when I was a kid, would have built it! Recently bought this from a hobby shop in Phoenix. Finished in 5 days (23 hours). The original molds were lost, Monogram resurrected a few years ago; nice kit, mold lines minimal, good fit, only flaw was all 4 flag decals the same (look bad on other side). I resisted scratch-building, but did cut jerry can handles into 3.
I have several models in progress, haven't worked on for years, wanted to actually finish a model. I have been attending a model club lately, getting back into this hobby.
