The Minicraft kit consists of just 46 styrene parts molded in white and 7 styrene parts molded in clear. The detail is very, very good and the kit features recessed panel lines and some of the best rivet detail that I have seen. There is a fair amount of flash present but it is thin and will not present any problems during cleanup.

The kit features markings for 4 different aircraft. One each from the United States, Canada, Germany and Great Britain. The markings are printed by Cartograph and are perfect.

The kit features a full interior and a full engine that can be viewed after construction thanks to the removable cowl. The kit also allows you to build the aircraft in flight on a display stand.

Overall, it looks to be a very nice kit of the Cessna 150 and with the low parts count; it will be a fairly quick build.

My sincere thanks to Minicraft Models for this review sample!
