Looking at the new Trumpy CV-63 and the Fujimi CV-63 special issue with PE. Has anyone here been able to look in the boxes to compare these two kits? What are your thoughts?

I have not seen the new Trumpeter offering, but can tell you all about the Fujimi release. It is a horrible kit. Avoid it at all costs.

I have both. Fujimi is half built and I’ve just started the Trumpeter one. I can tell you there is really no comparison. The Trump kit so far is light years ahead as one would expect with the age difference. The only oddity I’ve found so far with Trumpeters kit is no hangar bay door option but that should be a simple fix with some Evergreen. Even with the etch, the Fujimi is no match. The Trumpeter kit has some impressive detailing and some very fine moldings. Now if I could find some etch for this new CV-63...
