A nice review, but would it not be better titled Night Raider.

that's too bad,

I was hoping for a 1:35 KITT and David Hasselhoff

Thanks for this review Charles. Great photos for details.

You're right, I would have like too the head in separate part.

What I don't like also is the base and the figure together. Even if I would have to use a bit of putty, I always prefere to choose the base. Indeed, it seems a bit hard to insert this base in a larger diorama.

Cheers.
Alex.

No question that the language barrier affected the kit's title.
I believe M-Models intended it to be 'Night Raider'

At least the face could have looked like David Hasselhoff, right ? LOL

I agree with all you've said Alex, the kit doesn't lend itself to be used easily in any arena other than a stand alone figure. But it is a nice little vignette in itself.

Considering the subject matter, flawless casting, nice detail, I can still highly recommend this kit in spite of the aforementioned drawbacks.

Thanks for the review Charles, i fully agree with you. Are you going to make a blog from this? I already have this kit for a while in my stash. I really should start with it, because it is such a nice kit.

Only regret that the figure is with the base

I thought it did look like Mr Hasselhoff
