Very correctly built "Hayate" and an interesting one! I see some problems with the wing leading edge where the seam is very visible and the gun barrels protrude too much but overall a very fine model with correct amount of weathering on an old kit. Love the radio line! I'd like to reward the effort for accuracy and therefore 4.7 from me.

Now that's perfect.

Nice work. On a 1:72 scale, you have my admiration.
I give 4.7 points.

A great model, nice weathering. I would assume the area under the canopy is rather painted with anti-glare colour (blue-black or maroon). Again a 4.7

Nicely done, but some details are overlooked and penalize the model. Weathering is not over done, but it should be more heavy on the underside as this is a place difficult to work with, and where dust and stains are at home. 4,5 for me.

A nice Hayate! There are some build issues, which others have noted, but very effective weathering. 4.6

For 1/72 this is a very fine effort. Yes, it's not without (minor) faults, but I would be proud to have it on my shelf.
Since it is better to praise than criticize, I will note that he got the antenna wires correct (one from the mast to the tail and the other from the mast to the starboard side elevator). I have seen many fine Hayate models that do not get this correct. My vote is a 4.6 for a solid entry.

Very nice model despite some issues - which in general I can share - but again I would have done major efforts to increase stains and dirt on the undersides. However the subject looks good. For me 4.6
