Hello

I also bought this kit from luckymodel during their sale; the box kit is what lured me into it

Great review, but what do you mean by "Vision slits on the sides of the cupola are not present and will have to be carefully added?"

Shaun, thanks for the help. Matan, glad you liked it. Alexander, around the cupola there should be small vision slits to correspond with each block inside. They are just barely visible on the box art, and if you can find any good closeup photos of the Shinhoto turret they are visible as well.
