I have only built one model by this company, their 155mm Long Tom. I found it to be a very well engineered kit. I have also read some of their reviews on the web by other modellers and most reports are very good. Which kit are you interested in building? If you are after info on a particular kit there'll be a review on it somewhere I'm sure.
Happy Modelling and God Bless Robert

Excellent! I've built their M-41A3, M-10, and Achilles. Great fit, great detail, and not too expensive. Definitely up there in the Tamiya (if not better!) range.
Check 'em out!

Superb kits. I have several. Their M88A1 is a top of the line kit to rival Tamiya's best. Only downfall is the lack of an interior and this vehicle has a lot of interior that can be visible. Other kits I have are the M548A1 ammo carrier, M102 105mm howitzer, M10 Wolverine (another nice kit with aluminum barrel and spring loaded recoil), M35A2 2½ ton truck (superb softskin cargo truck), and both of their West German Wiesel tracked vehicles (20mm and TOW variants). Both of those kits contain miniscule PE frets for the drive sprocket and other detail items. They also have some of the nicest workable single link track available for modern vehicles.

They are a good company.

Thank you for the replies on this company. I have been interested in buying the 155mm Long Tom and the tractor/truck that tows it. I just wanted to know if the cost would be worth it. Looks like it! Big Smile [:D]

If you are going to build the Long Tom in a towed configuration.....you'll have to make a couple of "adjustments" to the suspension to make the back wheels sit level on the ground.....nothing too serious just so you are aware before you begin.

Thanks Robert. I will keep that in mind when I figure out what the heck I am going to do with the Long Tom!
