Its too bad because the big Tamiya kit is somewhat poor too

Response to I'd still go with the 31 year old Tamiya kit

Unless its been revised the cockpit surfaces are all smooth with simplistic black and white decals for all of the consoles and panels. The surface texture was a strange mix of raised and recessed panels. Not the lines but the panels themselves. One panel would stick up a bit and the next was recessed slightly. It looked like an uneven tile floor. Fit was not great and some areas were a bit sloppy like the screws that hold the main body together were not totally hidden by the Phoenix missile fairings.

The revised version of the Revell kit (compared to the orginal issue) is not too bad. I thought in some ways the cockpit was better OOTB. Both kits would need some serious detailing.
