Hi Frederick,

I remember building the original Aurora release of this I-19 kit soooo many years ago. I especially enjoyed the John Steel artwork on the boxtop. Of course, the seaplane wouldn't have been on deck as the boat was surfacing like that, but I didn't care - it looked so sinister-cool! Interestingly, Monogram used the same artwork for their re-release but printed it in reverse.

Haven't thought about this old classic in years. Thanks for the review!
