Thanks for the review, Al. I'm sure by now you have the highest number of reviews on Armorama

The only comment I have with regards to this review is, if there are "no lows you could identify", why the set only gets a 75% rating? Not trying to be funny, just curious....

Hi Rudi,

Good question. Thoughts here were it's not essential and it's quite expensive at 10.00 for a small fret, the% as I understand it is how good/relevant/necessary the kit is. As you probably know I'm not a fan of the % as it's quite subjective.

Didn't stop me Recommending it thought, if you want to spend the cash. With any kit I do think you have to consider value for money too, but that's only my personal opinion which doesn't make it right.

Cheers

Al

1) I think you just found your lows - remember, these are as subjective as the %
2) I agree.

Rudi has a point, price vs. quantity is very definitely worth mentioning as an advantage or disadvantage based on the situation.

Despite it's high cost, I will definitely want to buy this set if I ever get my hands on a 1/35 Tamiya Tilly.

Hi Rudi,

Yes and No .

There were no lows with the kit parts and the price I mentioned in the review so then it's down to personal choice.
