For all of you reading the review, be advised that the decals were left out of the review. I was unable to get white lettering backed by white paper to show up for a picture. The decals include range & fireing tables plus 4 letters in white. The capital letters A, B, C & D plus a name in white.

My mistake, Joe, added some text about the decals

Although not my cup of tea, it does look like a nice kit.
Thanks for the review.

Thanks for the review. From what I saw it looks quite nice. Mighty tempting.

I would have liked a few more photos and detail, but that's just me (each to their own, right?). Out of curiosity, the box says "Special Parts. First Edition Only". What parts are these?

The figure wears tropical gear (read DAK) so would be perfect for a MTO setting.

Thanks again.

You get a resin figure with the First Edition kit. It won't be in subsequent boxings.
