This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.
Tamiya's first-ever 1/72 aircraft kit. They've included it in their "Warbird Collection" line-up of kits (which are Italeri tooling in Tamiya boxes), but this kit is definitely not from Italy! The detail on this is just as good as their 1/48 kit of the same plane -- it appears all they did was set their CAD machine for a different scale and re-cut the mold. Includes parts for the transport dolly. A superb effort at an unbeatable price. Highly recommended.
