Gary, Another really excellent in depth pre-build box review. I'm looking forward to following your build to it's conclusion. I've seen several builds of this kit from super, and I mean super detailed, to OOB museum quality. It's a fantastic kit that surely will be a joy for you to build and share with us. Joel

Wow that was great - a beer and kit review. What a excellent review idea. Any chance you can get that beer in the US? I am on LINK and is always looking for brews to check in. Oh nice kit. Cheers

Nudging 40 Celcius here, so the "joy to watch" applies at both ends of the temperature scale ! Excellent work, what a great format to review kits. It really does add another dimension to add to the enjoyment. I can almost smell that "fresh out of the box" styrene that we all crave. Cheers, D

Gary, I love your review and I totally agree that after market items are probably not necessary, apart form Paint masks. So if you would like some paint masks for this just give me a shout I have the kit and I'm planning on doing "Big Hog" mainly because of the S&B with red surround and the "Big Hog" script But I can do almost any scheme that you desire

Hi there At the risk of being a lone voice in the wilderness (and this is me talking as an (almost) ex-video editor who totally admires Gary's presentation style!), I have to admit I gave up when I saw the duration. I can't spend half nearly an hour just watching a first take on a kit. As much as I love the idea of video reviews - they are long. I'm certainly no Luddite and, much as I love new technology, it's just so much quicker to read than listen... All the best Rowan
