Picked up a couple of these for some kitbashing as the price was right. I knew it was a copy of the Hasegawa kit beforehand. Both kits, however, don't have a single straight major part. Wings, fuselage & nacelles are all severely warped. Completely unbuildable. I could see all of the details were soft & rounded, but that didn't concern me since the paint would take care of that. I threw both kits back in the boxes & pulled out a good ol' Hasegawa kit. Nearly fell together! Anyway, I've built other Hobbycraft kits & don't recall any major problems. Did I just get 'lucky' or are all the S-2s junk?
