While I can see your point about decals Michal, it does look as if MiniArt have tried to include a reasonable level of moulded badge detail. The amount of flash shown in your pictures is a surprise and disapointing to see. Thanks for the review.

Howdy!
Thank you very much Bill for posting my review and for all your editorial help (especially the language ;P)

I have started a build blog of this kit. So far it consists two figures from the right side of the box art. I'll try to build a small vignette juist as shown on the box.

You can find it HERE

Darren: the problem with the details is not so serious as it looks. You can easiely build the figures and they will look ok. If you think you need something more just use Archer or any other aftermarket set. You can do it anytime you want because you won't damage the previous work. Believe me, the flashes and seams are not the biggest problem during the build...see my "in progress" pics.
