Praised in a feature in the Fall 1972 issue of The Squadron magazine, the Tamiya F-86F & MiG-15 set was proclaimed as, ". . .extremely well done...flash free and the fit is good. They are up to the typical high standard we have come to expect from the aggressive Japanese manufacturer. Easily among the finest jet kits available today, Tamiya''s 1/100 Minijets are as detailed as their larger counterparts in 1/76 scale."

Certainly not a scale I'm used to seeing. These kits seem like a good break from most people's norm, and they seem like they would be well suited to introducing children to the hobby.
