Kit # PS720002 Preview by Henk Timmerman

Preliminary remark:
This preview is based upon a pre-production kit. While the production kit has decals added, it seems the sprues have not been altered.

Classification: Quick build kit - 2 kits in a box.

The kit comes in a cardboard box (folded type) with a size of 20x9x4 cm.

The kit contains:
- A plastic bag with 2 identical sprues, with a size of 17 by 7 cm; every sprue contains 14 parts for the vehicle.
- Instruction manual
- Decals (decals were not included in my example).

The examples I have received did not have sinkholes or flash.
Ejector marks were on the inside of the parts (where they will be invisible after construction).
There is no misalignment on the parts.
Two hatches can be opened.
There are no tools on the fenders.

Casting quality is high class; all part are very sharp and highly detailed for a “Quick Build” kit.

Hull width: 19,5 mm.
Hull length: 39 mm (not counting the fenders)

Instruction Manual:
The instruction manual is excellent with instructions for the places of the markings and painting colours.

For a “Quick Build” kit this model is high class and casted to a high standard.
It is to be recommended kit for many modelers. My compliments to S-Model.

My thanks to S-Model for the preview sample of this kit.
