Nice review overall, but it would be nice if the parts were kept still instead of waved around. But the review did its job - I am interested in acquiring the kit now =)

Thanks for the feedback Vance. It was Ernie's first video review, so some of that is to be expected. Remember the video can be be viewed in up to 720p resolution by up-checking the little gear icon, or by going to YouTube and watching it direct, or on full-screen. Thanks, Jim

Yeah, I'm sure he did better than I would with a video review! and it certainly does do the job. thanks Ernie.

I didn't mind the movements of the sprues: I thought the images were very clear and crisp despite this. Interesting to see how the decal instruction profiles match all the numerous outline inaccuracies of the kit perfectly, right down to the deeply beaked nose and even the fictional high windshield/protruding bulged glass top combination... This kit is way too poor for me to consider, and it is a rotten shame as the market for this is now cornered for decades to come... Please choose more obscure subjects in the future Xu-Tong... Or better yet, consult some photos before cutting moulds! Gaston

Ernie, Well done, first video review and all! Making video reviews aren't for the faint of heart. I look forward to your next one! Some nice interior shots of a Chinese Tu-2 are at: IN PHOTO REFERENCE; More; More MUSEUMS & COLLECTIONS; The War Eagles Air Museum; Tupolev Tu-2 -or- LINK
