Well, the boxes are different - and so are the decal sheets, but as far as I can judge the plastic bits of these two purportedly different kits are, in fact identical, Didn't bother me especially - others might feel more annoyed.

They're good little kits too: reasonable detail for the economical price, fair fitting, nice final result. Only complaint I have is that decals for the F3 do not include the white striping for wings and fuselage and as this is outlined in black making your own is a little troublesome.

Everything here was finished by brush using Tamiya acrylics. Base is IKEA decorated once again with old decals (USN and Marines). Figures are from the also very old Revell PT Boat and may not be exactly right but are at least US Navy.
