1.1) Comments: The models came in a sturdy box. The sprues showed no flash. Details are quite nice with recessed panel lines and nice cockpit with photo-etched seat belts. The V1 showed some strange pin locations, with a reinforced plastic bar that made the fit of the parts worst. The Re3 and Re4 showed more conventional pin locations that made construction easier. The pictures show these details:
