I do not agree David, I feel this is a good model with good detail.

I'm building the Dragon one right now, so I'll be very curious to see them built side by side some day.

Thank you for the review, Darren. I will have to add this to my wish list for when I get caught up.

Are you going to explain why you think this, or are you delibrately trying to lose this arguement?

The images I have provided do not depict soft detail in my opinion.

I also would like to know how this kit compares with the Dragon offering. I realize that that wasn't the point of the review, but I'm still curious, so what do you think about maybe adding a paragraph next review where comparable kits exist so that we can figure out which one to buy?

Thanks for the comprehensive review Darren. While I have no early Dragon III's to compare it to it does look the part.
Are the tracks "handed"? THe guide horns look very good though. A nice collection of PE & a metal barrel too. Plus wingnuts in that scale, nice.
