Fujimi kept the status quo going with a great build. I would have been more appreciative if they gave the option for an opened up cockpit but I am happy with what was provided. I am also quite relieved to see that I added enough ballast in the nose. I can usually tell if I added enough by how heavy it feels when I hold the kit. This one felt a little light which had me worried through the entire build. It turned out to be a needless worry and the kit came out sitting on all three wheels.
There were no issues surrounding this build. Fujimi produced a very problem-free kit. The decals worried me at first because they were yellowed. I searched online for Alpha Jet decals and couldn’t come up with an affordable option other than Red Arrows or Anniversary representations. Nothing against those schemes, I just wanted a regular old Alpha Jet. The decals turned out to work well. My expectations seem to be the downfall to my builds.
