Nice review Jim.
I got one of these in the mail about two weeks ago. It looked too cool not to order one. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. This kit is a real little jewel! The quality is exceptional and it will make a neat little subject. It should be a simple, pleasant OOB build, nice and relaxing! I too hope that Pit Road has more releases planned.

Apart from the wobbly rifle it looks really nice. This car has been on my wants list for years, so it's great to finally see one in 1/35th. I wonder who'll be boxing it for the European market?

Good review,

Like David, I went straight to the figure to check out its quality. It's pretty good for something thrown in with a vehicle but the rifle lets it down.

Thanks for the review.
Mine arrived the other day.
Very nice "little" kit.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the review, completely missed this one. Looks like a neat little kit.

Had a look on their web site does, anyone know of a UK distributor? This one looks like fun.
