Good review Chas ... and you hit the nail on the head.
This would be useful if there were four different sections ... with some damage .... even one or 2 with sandbags with gaps for rifle positions.
I can see some simple sets useful, where time is saved, but these would be so easy to put together, add in some more varity and fit it your own base, than have to build around them.
I think you were too generous, even, with 65%.

Thanks for your opinion Frank. It was a struggle to find positives for this kit. Although it looks good as an undamaged, perfect trench structure, that's not what many modellers want. I chose not to rate it worse due to it being difficult for me to justify, because that's up to the individual modeller to decide and perhaps voice in this thread.

Thanks again for your feedback,
Chas
