So far this kit is looking great. Dragon kit like detail, excellent fit on parts but a little bit of flash slipping in were it shouldn't. Trumpeter have certainly come a long way since they first started producing kits. I recently did a part of build on one of their very first kits the Type 59-D (modernised Chinese T-54/55). The kit while having good fit was woeful in accuracy and detail. Now Trumpeter is releasing a high volume of kits, of a range of subjects usually with an excellent amount of quality and accuracy. However it does seem like with their rush to release such a range of kits the quality of moulding or the odd silly accuracy slip creeps in. In short Trumpeter, keep up the great evolution of you kits but please don't let your quality start to slip.
