Man, this kit is HUGE! Weighs in at 18 lbs. I paid four times more for it than any other model I've ever bought, but considering how long it will keep me busy, I think it's worth it. Hopefully I won't get bored after a year or two! Here are a couple of pics. The second one includes Tamiya Famo and trailer as a comparison.

Yeah, it's huge.

Have you already fondled the parts? It's almost a shame to start openening it all. It's all so nice and tidy and neatly packed.

For anyone interested, Sam Dwyer has begun a build log of this kit over on Planetarmor.

Thanks Mike. That'll be a big help.
