Response to Recommendations--- An easy 1/48 aircraft build for a beginner

No Trumpeter or Hobbyboss kits. They are inaccurate.
No Kittyhawk kits, because they don't fit together well. And they are inaccurate.
No kits by Hasegawa, Monogram, Revell, Italeri, or Airfix, because as soon as you complete it, Tamiya will make a better one.
No Eduard kits, because you really won't know what scale you're building.
Nothing "Oversimplified"
Nothing too "Fiddly"
No kits released before 1980, because they are not detailed enough.
No Zoukei Mura kits, because they are too detailed.
Nothing you'll have to weather, because it will come out looking overdone.
Nothing that is olive drab or gloss sea blue or IJN gray, because no one really knows what those colors look like.
Nothing German, because, you know, swastikas.
Nothing Finnish. Because more swastikas.
No Skyraiders, because bumblebees are worse than swastikas
No P-47s, because as nice as it turns out it is sure to have the wrong engine.
No Sea Furies. See above.
No 109s or P-40s, because there are too many things you don't know about them. From what I read here.
And nothing too expensive, because no model kit should cost more than $40.

That leaves the new Tamiya Ki61. Just don't paint a clover leaf on it. 😊
