Summary: The set is quick build. Smaller than it’s predecessors. Great choice of included figures. Good value.
Overall Rating: I give this set 9.0 out for 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 9.0 out of 10?
• Other than it being smaller than previous Hornets, a small issue I had with the set was the small angled loop piece at the back-bottom of the set. It kept falling out while I was trying to build the set. By the end though, it fit snug enough.
• The only other thing I wish this set had was the sliding cockpit, like the originals did, instead of the pop up cockpit.
• IMO, this set is worth a multiple purchase!
Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• The figures each with their weapon and stand are $3.50 for a total of $7.
• The Hornet itself is worth the remaining $13.
TOTAL: $20.00 (before tax and in U.S. dollars)
Given that the set costs $20 US before tax, this set is right on par for value with it’s retail price point.
Do I recommend it? YES! As mentioned above, I think it’s worth multiple purchases.
