I built this kit. I like it. It comes with 4 mg 42's. The figures are good poses & are useful in any diorama. I disagree with the 75% score the guy gave it...it's more like 96% concerning the value you get for the $. The actual model turns out to be pretty sweet looking.

Not too sure what part C19 is, but on several 250 kits, both old and Neu, had the transmission missing - it's supposed to fit under the commander's saddle seat between driver and co-driver. As it is, the seat is just standing on a thin rod which on some other 250 kits (with the transmission included) fits into a hole in the transmission. As that part is simply not included in the kit, or in the instructions, Dragon refused to send replacements. I made a mold and cast my own resin ones for vehicles that needed it. In spite of that, the kit is still worth more than a 75. Of course, you could always look for a better one!

The Kit is much better than a 75% rating would suggest.The Tooling and extra detail on the two Premium Edition 250's are ,as one might expect,appreciably better.However, these older Kits still represent good value for money and can be built into representative examples of the 250 models they represent,with or without additional detailing.

It's good to have this sort of discussion, because I would be terribly disappointed in this kit, while others may find it good value for money. I don't give %% ratings on my reviews anymore, but I'm OK with a 75% here because of all the reviewers who say 95% for something with obvious flaws because they love the base kit.
