Gino, thank you for this. This review tells me just what I needed to know, and this set is going to be a good buy for me.

Unfortunatly, this set corrects only the exterior flaws. The interior is still untouched and needs more care. A new dashboard, better seats and the SINCGARS rack is required. Maybe Robert S. could point this out to Legend Productions?

I didn't have anything to do with this one that I know of (I've sent Lee dozens of walkarounds with measurements over the years, so even I've forgotten what we might have talked about then) but I could easily help with an interior. The problem is always a financial question: How many people would actually upgrade an interior that in most cases you see little of? We meet twice a year, and only spend about 10% of the time talking about about modeling. Let's face it, Korea is ALWAYS an interesting place to be, especially when artillery fire is being exchanged.
With softskins, I personally think what's in them or where they are is far more interesting than seeing if someone put the proper brake pedal in it, but again, that's just me. I think if you see what else is coming, you'll be happier anyway. For now, I'm anxious to put that M48A2C upgrade to use. THAT had my input for sure, and was done in just a few months.

H-H: Fehlt mir gerade ein - Du hast bestimmt die moelichkeit ooch diese Karre to fotografieren, oder? Ick denke Du bist selbst mit'n paar Firmen beschaeftigt?
