Sounds like this kit will be a lovely build. I do have one question however. I had read before about 1/35 Adler kits having wheels that were too narrow, and I was wondering how the wheels from this kit fared dimensionally?

It's a gorgeous model, and it's been in my stash for a while and high on my to-do list. Thanks for the review.

Forget the kit, the review is superb. A bar for other reviewers to meet.

I just found this review; oddball subjects like this are my interest and this looks like an excellent model. Has anybody here built one?

Hi Frederick,

I just received one in October, 2014 but haven't torn into it yet. This particular kit (w/gun) seems to be a bit difficult to find these days. I was able to find mine on eBay for a very reasonable price after factoring-in shipping — fast delivery too!

Somewhere else in the forum, it was mentioned that the kit is extremely delicate and difficult to assemble — looks good to me! HTH.
