Thanks for the review, Olivier. You were very polite in it! This is typical AEF - great product idea, but inaccurate, missing parts, and crappy casting. Non existent customer service, too. The guy just doesn't care. I have one AEF kit and I keep it just to remind me not to ever buy an AEF product again. His kits make scratchbuilding the subject an easier option.

Totally agree,I have an AEF kit at home serving exactly the same purpose too.

45%? Wow, that's brutal. But glad you were honest, Olivier. Glad to see bold reviews that "tell it like it is." No point shelling out $$$$, pounds or Euros for #@%& that is inaccurate. Better the guy wakes up and does it right unless he's giving the stuff away.

I'm in the burned (more than) once club from them too.
I keep a BTR interior for the very same reason.

as for staying in buisness.. well you'd be surprised how often new modellers ask about AEF once you start keeping an eye out.

Yeah,yeah,I 2 dunno why AEF is still in business,especially with Legend doing some exactly the same products with better quality(shrinkage problem remains though).
