Hi Charles,

Thanks for the review. I take my hat off to Plus Models for doing this vehicle, but coming in at over $100.00 it's a kit I won't be buying but is one that cries out to be done in 1/35 plastic.

Only observation is that they have supplied the No 4 Rifle which although available didn't come into service until about 1943 I think. SMLE would have been more appropriate.

At the cost you would think they could have included the brass wire necessary to complete the build!

Great looking kit but too expansive for most modellers.

Al

This is a gorgeous looking kit, but as Alan has stated, "it's a kit I won't be buying", unless I win the lottery. I shall keep looking at it though .
Nice review Charles, will you be building this anytime soon?
