    Hi everybody,
    on e-bay I found an Italian seller offering the above kit for a very good price, specially if compared with Tamiya one.
    Does anybody know anything about this kit?
    Thanks in advance
    Alberto

    The Arii kit would be a rather old kit, definitely not in the same league as the Tamiya kit, which I do have and it IS top notch.

    Many thanks to all!
    I was just intrigued by the very low price.
    So, if I will go for a Zero, I will take a Tamiya-

    Its worth it if you can get it for around 5 dollers. I got a similar Otaki Kit for a P-40 for 5 bucks and I added some aftermarket parts to modernise her, ended up looking pretty decent :) If your on a budget then do it, if not and just for accuracy you can get some better kits for that price tag.

    Well, it's offered at 26 USD plus 13 for shipment and if I add some aftermarket stuff I end not far from the Tamiya price ...

    I think you could get a tamiya for better, I was thinking it was at some rock bottom price :D my mistake, sorry :)
