I am a huge fan of South African National Defence Force (SANDF) vehicles. They are well suited to the environment and after two tours to Iraq, I have a new appreciation for V hulled wheeled vehicle designs.
I bought the 105mm Rooikat when it came out a few years ago and it was a fun easy build of a really cool AFV.
Packaging: These are probably the nicest boxed kits I have ever seen. The box is a laser cut fiber wood contraption that is zip tied closed on top. There is also a laser cut image of each vehicle on the front. On a side note, I may ask that they keep the boxes and just send the kits in bubble wrap to cut down on shipping weight.
In the box: All the kits are made out of a really nice light grey resin and packaged in about 4-5 small baggies. There are no air bubbles on any of the pieces and minimal flash. The full color directions are in a separate static bag. Now on to the kit!
The G-6: Probably the coolest artillery piece ever made! As a former Red Leg, I have a fondness for any instrument of the King of Battle.

This kit is a monster. There are 24 parts in resin and one sprue of clear plastic for the storage cage. The hull is a three piece thing of beauty.
The barrel is straight and the muzzle is well cast with only two small casting plugs on the underside.

The full color instruction sheet is a little lacking and you might need to use your Google here and find some good pictures of it, especially the stuff behind the turret..

All in all I am super tickled with this rare subject. I highly recommend it and hope to see more from them soon.
