Is the 2S7M kit better than this one? Or just slight modifications added on a Sprue of two?

My pleasure... I was so totally focused on doing a speed build for everyone,,, that I didn't pay as much attention to the written word as I should have... I am very grateful to Jim, Darren and Berhidi, for all the slack they gave me concerning the final outcome of the article. After I had asked to do the build , Jim did an open box review, and I could hear the longing in his tenor. And not knowing any better I asked again to build the kit. Jim showed graciousness and kindness in sending it to me. I was the doufus that didn't realize the full requirements of a build "review". ,,, but in the end we all ended up with a proper review.

All in all... Its a great Kit...and as I stated...I liked it so much I bought another to hold in reserve ..for the deep winter nights when I will need a freakin good challenge..... when I know I'll Love the outcome of; me v.s. plastic. ... (again)

Great build review C.J.

Didn't I tell you it was a fun build but also a challenge to your building skills?

Job well done my friend
