Excellent review as always, Jacob. It's a great time to be alive if you like soft skins!

Right you are, Bill. But some of them are quite a challenge to build. I've built the Diamond T Wrecker from Mirror Models, and the kit looks very nice when finished, but it's a real drag to construct.
I'll post some pictures in a near future.

I do know about the issue of vinyl rubber and oil based products, but if correctly sealed prior to an oil based product being used, there should not be an issue. I did enjoy the review as you hit on the points that were of interest and concern.

Thank you Darren. About the rubber tires, I've actually experienced these tires to sort of "leak" some kind of oily substance, even if they are only treatet with pastels. Maybe i've just been hit by some bad luck

I have heard that about Italeri I think it was, but I believed that was an issue of the past.

Hope you're right Darren, but mine are from AFV Club's M49A2 Fueltanker. It might be an older release, though.
