To say the Academy kit is "severely lacking" is unfair criticism in my opinion especially if you are judging only from a review which doesn't come to that conclusion. I think Severe is too strong a word to use.
I did just drop by to voice an opinion -that's allowed I think
I probably will sign up though closer to the embarkation date, I have a terrible habit of signing up to campaigns and then forgetting about them until a month from the finish
I shouldn't have a problem with Shermans though- I have plenty in the stash to chose from including another Academy M4A2/76
Why didn't I use the kit tracks? - I can't remember. I think because I had them made up from another build and photos showed them in use on Soviet Shermans
So, in your opinion I cannot express my opinion to say that one kit having less PE and decal variety is unfair criticism? There lies the problem.
I think if it was such a great kit you would have used the kits tracks. I just like the fact that the DML had nicer tracks and the PE and the decals offer more of a variety in what version to go with. And it just wasn't the "review" that I was going by because there was more than just text going on there. The images tell the whole story as to which has more to offer.
So ... okay, I see where you're going with this. This could go on and on so just join up or ... You just didn't like MY opinion but yours is golden? Okay.
Have a great day!
