Thanks James.

One correction to the review. I wrote:

Quoted Text

Oddly enough, the box cover indicates that the markers are sold separately, yet they are included.



Looking at the box cover up close (as you've posted it), I was mistaken in that the width markers are not included. That "SOLD SEPERATELY" is referring to the list of other PE sets for this kit (listed immediately to the right). I believe my mistake came from the bracket on the left...and thought it "pointed" to the width marker.

Anyhow, if you would be so kind as to remove that sentence from the review, I'd appreciate it. The sentence is under "Contents," second paragraph, second sentence.

Thanks and my apologies for the "Doh!"

Mike

Done Mike, the box top is a bit confusing

Wish Voyager would color code for what's included and what's not...if you're not used to their products it could be a big let down if you don't read the 'small print'.

Great review and thanks for taking the time to write it, looks to be a pretty good set. I think Lucky Model has it for about $22 USD shipped.

I think THE best value of the review is stating exactly what is in the kit! Voyager really needs to stop their practice of including everything in their product photo. I get the feeling they are taking some heat for it since now they are putting the description of what isn't included instead of just listing the product numbers on the cover (and that's an amazing amount of stuff not included). On the other hand, I can appreciate that they would want the modeler to know that these other sets are applicable to the same subject.
