Let us know what it is like when you open it. I see that someone has just listed some on evil bay for about $65.00 plus postage.

I normally don't do current stuff - but this thing is so pig ugly that it looks good - so I might have to make an exception.

Hi all, I picked it up the other week from Showcase's new shop in the city (little Burke st.). I will try to do a video review of it sometime in the next few days. It looks good and accurate, though there is some flash on some of the sprues (havent seen any on Ming or Trumpeter kits, so was surprised.), though not too bad. Certainly nothing as bad as Revel kits. Got hectic week with mate's wedding, so may be next week for a review if noone beats me to it. Certainly given the rarety of the subject, it's worth buying for the price. (I paid $59, but had a deposit on it for 2 years!) Mick.
