Very nice review!

I just think that calling it a "new release" is a little misleading. The kit was released in 2003! It's almost five years ago now. It is a "new tooling" compared to ancient Tamiya kits (and their Academy copies), but otherwise it is quite old already

Good point Pawel, it's been revised...I didn't catch that the first time around.

On a side note, we are always looking to "fill the gaps" on kits that are still readily available but aren't in our Reviews section, such as this one.

Very nice review Andy.
It's good to see some of the passed over kits getting reviews to fill in the blanks.

Pawel,
Thanks for the critique. I guess I had wrote "new release" as I have not seen it avertised, on vendors tables, nor at the LHS untill recently. To me, it was a new release. I just looked and saw that it was listed in the 2006 VLS catalog. I guess its arival slipped past my radar, which is surprising as jeeps and M151 series are some of my favorite subjects.

Andy
