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.Read more ›
Challenging skill level, small and fiddley bits. Hard to paint, Probably good to paint some of the more fiddley bits while they are still on the "jigs"
The paints are a bit crappy they hardly stick. Im looking for some better ones now.
Good value set.
Don't expect 3 separate boxes inside its just a pile of parts in a few bags.
