Quite a complete review - I have two of these in the original boxing but it's nice to see cheaper (albeit less refined) kits out there. Not sure if I agree with no new parts being a "low" as most consumers understand the orange box range to be re-popped kits from old molds. The decals are a downer but if most modellers are like me they have about a zillion decals in a shoe box somewhere! What I do like about the orange box range is older kits that are now readily available such as the rail cars, and the Jagdpanzer IV A/O is a steal at the retail price!

This is a great kit for an entry level modeler looking to cut their teeth on a Dragon kit. Although it's pushing twenty years old it's still quite accurate, and the additions are much better than what was originally in the box. The skulls were left clear I believe because each platoon was a different colour, research will be required to determine which colour is required. The sink marks are a sign of the age of the molds, however they can be dealt with.
