This looks great Ted, the only thing I'm left curious about is the overall accuracy of the kit.

I just wondering why nobody mention about raised sections as hand grips for these metal barrels? Clearly AFV club made a same mistake like Fukuya did.

Looks to be a very intricate kit.One question though, the metal barrels, are they machined or cast? There seems to be a prominent seam on some ,unless it's a trick of light or photography.To these old eyes though, it looks to be a casting seam?

Mike, the barrels are machined and so there are no seams. I received my kit a couple of weeks ago and it is really nice. Between the releases from AFV, Dragon, and Bronco (which also has one), I went with AFV for the simple fact they included the metal barrels.

By the way, very nice review, Ted!
