Wohoo - my F1-09 arrived yesterday
I'm very impressed by the high quality of both the FRP chassis parts as well as the blue alu parts. The plastic is, as said before, a lot flexier compared to the Tamiya F104. But I don't think this will be a problem.
The manual is first class - one of the best I've ever seen in my 35 years in the hobby!
But I think they made a miss on page 4&5 - the upper front caster mount should be mounted the other way around (the hinges to the rear - not to the front as in this picture)
The body is nice - but then again not as nice as the original F104 body.
This kit must, without a doubt, be the best value on the market today!

You're just being ironic -- right?
