I picked up my Lanchester Armoured Car, CSM 35001, earlier this week and this evening I got some spare time to take a look in the box.
Impressed is the only word I can use.
I wish Dragon could send their assembly instruction designers to Latvia for a course in how to make assembly instructions.
Small steps, very clear diagrams, added parts tinted blue, descriptive text, hints about important things to check.
There is no interior which suits me just fine (less work ...) so the parts count isn't huge. The parts are very well molded, very little flash and a normal amount of mold boundary lines. The spoked wheels are impressive, there is even small parts for the air valves (that will be fiddly, tweezer launch warning!!).
Five marking options, four RNAS without camo and one Belgian. The Belgian disruptive camo would probably disrupt my mind. Very artistic but would probably drive me crazy so I think I'll stay with the Admiralty Light Grey RNAS. The other two are Admiralty Dark Grey and something close to RAF Light Earth (with the British red-white-blue aircraft roundels).
Hmm, that little patch of colour is attractive in a way ...
I'll post sprue images and a page from the instruction booklet later.
