SUMMARY
Highs: The resin parts very highly detailed. Inclusion of detail wire and PE parts takes the detail to another level.
Lows: Some minor bubbles to deal with on some parts. Anyone used to building resin will have no problems with these.
Verdict: This is a very highly detailed, stand alone multi-media kit of an important WW1 Engine that will really stand out in your collection.
