I can't think of too many sci-fi kits in 1/35 scale, so this is a welcomed surprise. The fact that you also get an extra five figures and ammo crates, ammo belts, table/work station, cups, bag, hand guns, jerry can, drivers helmet and markings is an added bonus.
The kit is a good size with just the hull part measuring about 25cm long and that does not include the added parts to the front section. There is no less than eighteen spurs/trees on this kit which can be seen on the instruction parts list which I have included as part of this review.
The figures are very nice, I would say they are better than Tamiya figures and close or even the same as dragon figures in quality. I have included a pic of the girl from the kit but have placed the helmet on her head (to do this required some modifications).
Another nice aspect of this kit is the anti skid markings on the hull. Also some of the hatches and doors are separate, so they could be left opened. An interior could be designed for the inside that would be partly viewable.
This kit is just asking for extra detail, as other items can be added to it from your left over 1/35 kit parts/ P.E parts from other unused kits.
Lastly one thing I like about this kit is I can paint it whatever colour I like, as it is a sci-fi kit. This kit will come up really well with some nice washes, chips and other weathering detail.
