Hi

Thanks for the review. Without you we would not know what to expect.

Don't know about in the US, but these Orange box Cyberhobby kits are about as expensive as Dragon kits are in the UK.

EG., I paid less than the above RRP for the AFV Club LVT4, a lot newer kit, with REALLY Good Tracks.

As this is a re-pop of the old Italeri kit (not bad for it's age) with the usual rubbish Italeri Tracks, I'd avoid it it if you can get the AFV Club kit.

Good review Sal and I agree wholeheartedly. I bought this kit at a show a while back and had I realised at the time that it was the Italeri kit reboxed I honestly wouldn't have bothered. I've since seen the light and bought the AFV Club one and the Orange Box one now sits at the bottom of the stash, never to be built.

All might not be lost, you could do the Cuckoo kit as a wreck,
or wait for AFV club to release the promised seperate tracks...
hay... wait a minute...
