As I said before, I think it' s too expensive...Around 60$...For a short run plastic kit !
For this, you ' ve a mixed media kit: plastic hull, 2 metal .30 mm MGs, and 2 resin MGs turrets.....That' s all !
Detail is so-so, and you need lot of work to bring the thing to today kits standart....Don' t expect Tamiya, or Dragon, state-of-the-art !
I ' ve two Lindberg ' s LCVPs, and I didn' t buy the FM ones..... !
Have a nice day...!
