Revell's 1/72nd Atlantic is a good model. And, the Italian Eagle boxing makes it spectacular. However, the build is difficult although generally, the fit of parts is acceptable. You may want to consider the following points if you wish to build it.

 

Fuselage halves attachment is not straight forward and sanding the subassemblies may be required.

Engine nacelles attachment is also tricky.

Engineering of wing roots does not take into account the size and weight of the model. You may want to complete building, painting and decaling the model with the wing attachment stage left to the end.
