Hi Adam,

Sorry about gazumping your review - I didn't even realise a sample had been sent out until long after I posted my review. (I saw the kit on sale at a show, and years of pent-up desire to have a decent Starship in the collection got the better of me!)

I trust it won't put you off doing a full build and posting results here for us to see? My own build is still in raw plastic, awaiting the creative muse to push me to paint it...

Good to have another review thanks.

There's also a gallery entry and corresponding discussion over on Track-Link which I found quite informative :

This kit does carry on some errors From the Tamiya version.There are 2 fuel filler caps, whereas only the one on the right side of the rear deck is required.Also, that boss where a gun travel lock would go on the long gunned M60A1,should not be there at all. The searchlight / and mount are very well done.I also like the fact the smoke grenade launchers have caps,the Tamiya ones were mere tubes.
