Thank you for the review Andy. The inclusion of the fork bending moulds make this ki for me as without them I would think this kit a nightmare to make look right.

Andy,
Great job on both the review and the build. You have done a first-rate job, I really appreciate the build tips. They often seem like such a small thing, but they can be the difference between a great model and something that goes into the spares pile. I have the 'Military Police' kit with the bikes and figures to review and would like to link my review to your work if you don't mind.

Cheers,
Rick Cooper

Hi Rick,
thanks for the comments. No problem linking your review to this one, as the bikes are the same as far as I know. Just take your time with the build...lots of small parts but it goes together without much issue..other than that front wheel-fork alignment---but using the little plastic bit tucked under the fender and tire takes care of that issue.

Ill keep your eye out for your review as well!
Cheers
Andy

I agree! if it wasnt for the little squash jig for those spokes there would be no way to do those right.

thanks for the comments!

Great review and a very nice build of such a small kit. Very, very useful. Thanks Andy. One question though. Did you have to go to your eye doctor for glasses after?
