The resin parts (really high quality) are finely molded, with some flash, but no evident pinholes. There is a small seam on the fuselage parts, which are molded in left and right halves. The panel lines are fine engraved. The instruction sheet includes a three view drawing, text assembly instructions - in Japanese. A painting and decaling guide is also included in the instructions. The decal sheet includes instrument panel, the standard Star and Bar and USAF markings along with the specific X-22 markings.
