I have their earlier Packard kit and it's nice, but I have to say I was surprised to see that they did the body, like this one, split in two longways.. it will take some serious filling and sanding skills to make that seam disappear and get the top to look like a smooth one piece.

Nice review, Darren. Body in two halves down the middle will be a pain. Looks very nicely detailed though.
