      Four other options as well, but all military.

      I was excited until I read "Mach 2". Oh well.

      Based on the one Mach 2 kit I own, the Convair Sea Dart, I think Mach 2 gets a bad rap. The Sea Dart is not Tamigawa quality, but is certainly buildable and looks like a Sea Dart when completed.

      Iíve bought three Mach 2 kits and trashed all three of them. They are, in my experience, uniformly poorly researched and even more poorly executed. Iíve never seen one that didnít have *major* inaccuracies and that wasnít (at the very best) something you have to wrestle to the ground in order to build it. They wonít get any more of my money.
