I don't usually build very many planes, but I recently brought this 1/72 scale Revell Snap-tite kit because it looked kind of cool and I thought that it would be a simple project.  All parts were molded in dark blue plastic making it a Skill 1 kit. As I began assembly of the 14 or 15 parts, the parts fit was not quite as "tight" as I though it should be, so I took it part and super glued it together and painted it with Model Master Blue Angels Blue enamel paint.  The kit supplied "peel and stick" stickers instead of decals which was disappointing, so I used all the markers that I could, but the wing tip stickers were poor to say the least, so I masked and brush painted all the wing tips with Testors Yellow  for a better appearance.  I guess it doesn't look too bad for a kit designed for a kid
