Adam shares his views on this recent release from Dragon, which is an odd duck to be sure.

I realty enjoy watching Adam's videos. His history of a kit with pictures of the box tops is very helpful and shows the amount of time he puts into making a quality review. Keep up the great work, Adam.

Dragon has become a DRAG, New kits are not full of spruces and the The D S tracks which I nicknamed "DECEITFUL SHIT"! TRACKS. Its like every kit they come out with keeps getting worse and worse. Where will it end.....

Dragon's kit are still great. Only hard sell for them that a kit with quite some good goodies which cost $40 around 3 years ago, gets reissued, without the goodies and retails for $80+. There comes a point that it pisses people off.

Iraqiwildman, check out https://www.scalemates.com/ they have a "kit database" that does that is super helpful. It's the same idea Adam shows there, but with links. I certainly appreciate the effort here for sure, but I don't have 30 minutes to look at a kit review. (especially for just an in-box review) Next time I see "see video commentary" for the summaries, I need to just move on and find another review.

Steve-o, any of the video reviews posted here are done in a style I'd been doing for a while before doing stuff for Jim and I will admit are quite long. It's the kind of stuff I wanted to see when I was debating between kits on say ebay because i would stare at sprue shots and really try and weigh pros and cons. Anyway, anything i review for KitMkaer i also do a written build review of, but those take much longer to complete. So if the video is too ling there will be a more truncated text review posted by Jim at some point.

Thanks Adam! I'll look for your great comments in that format! The more intel on a kit before buying, the better. Much appreciated!
