H Tom,

Thanks for the review. I'm glad to see they replaced the tracks, the old set were terrible.

These kits do make a cost effective way to model, but I agree it is a pity they didn't correct the original errors with the kit too.

I would like to stand on my high horse and complain that the inter-war years are not served well... but your review is spot on. Why companies in this day cannot compromise between molding technology and getting it right is beyond me. The cost is the same unless they have purchased the molds from a firesale (as Mirage and others often do).
