Has anyone told amazon I'm not a charity case. At £20 they may aswell be dropping it into a hat as a lay there on the street with a small dog. Airfix are charging £50 and you have to pay £20 on amazon for just the lynx alone. I often find that when you get group sets like this with the paint and such the overall quality drops. i originally wanted just the people and maybe a jeep but when i saw the £20 knockdown i bought the whole set. the figures are multipart. That just means attaching the gun on but its better than a blob with a face drawn on. the figure are all different and go very well the land rover. I might incorporate them into a diorama of some kind but for now they look fine. the helicopter is magnificent with options for swept back rotors or in flight.i found myself with extra pieces afterwards that hadn't even been mentioned in the instructions but i used these to ludicrously pimp out the land rover. overall the kit is greta and you actually get enough paint to do the set. great as a gift as is very easy. the lynx is sometimes fiddly but overall its a great kit.

A great set and well worth the price at the knockdown £20 I bought it for. The Lynx is splendidly detailed and the Landrover is not far behind. The figures are also well detailed. Well done Airfix and well done Amazon for listing a seller who was virtually giving it away!!!

So much in the pack. The lynx is superb. Only annoyance is there is only one scheme for the helicopter. The figures are all great quality.

My 12 year old son has enjoyed building and painting this model. In comparison to our local model shop the price was cheaper and all the necessary glue and paints were included

This item is what you'd expect from Airfix, mouldings on the whole were good, with little flash, blurring or miscasting, (which you'd expect from a relatively new mould to the Airfix range).

This set is aimed at the more experienced modeller and presents a nice level of challenges during construction. As this was intended for a diorama to be placed in the mess room at work I also purchased the vehicle crew set and photetched parts, (Specifically intended to accompany the Op Herrick Range), which I can highly recommend if your looking for the next level of detail in this kit.

If your buying this kit because it comes with the paint, glue & brushes then prepare to be disappointed.

The amount of paint provided is nowhere near enough to fully paint all the parts properly (unless you want a patchy finished exterior or unpainted interiors which would be seen through the windows and doors etc!). I am used to this from Airfix and had bought the required paints beforehand (Revell paints, at a very good price here on Amazon), so was not an issue here, but be aware if your buying this with the expectation of not being required to purchase anything else to finish the kit. The amount of glue supplied is ample and the two Brushes supplied are good quality Humbrol brushes to no need to buy extras there.
