Build reviews are the most valuable source a modeler can get about a scale model kit.

Thank you Shawn for your efforts - must have been very challenging to finish this project: Fixing the issues, compensating the frustration and still being disciplinated to documente and write both a review and a description of the build process.

Nice job finishing that kit Shawn, and nice review, very honest, and accurate from what I have seen in my kit.

Reviews like this -and the idle banter, are what makes this site so useful to modelers. I know that I was less than impressed with my Kpz 70 kit, wondering how they could possibly have gotten it wrong when the real beast exists in various museums. Frustrating.

Even with all those issues your build has turned out very well. I wanted to get one of these kits but after hearing all the reviews, it doesn't sound like it is worth the hassle!

Very nice work and great paint job!
