After going on and on about how nice Hobbyboss’ Hawk 200 was, I find it a bit hard to believe that I find myself prepared to do the same thing with their IAR-80.
But this kit is just awesome. In fact, I’d actually say it’s a tick ahead of the Hawk 200 in terms of overall fit.
Anyone can enjoy this kit. It would be appropriate for a first kit for a nine year old. It would please the most seasoned modeler who is… older than nine.
It’s rare to have an intersection of fit, simplicity, affordability, and fun in modeling. To have it twice in a row is truly a treat.
I’ll post a full build report on AgapeModels.com later this week.
