Armorama

SUMMARY
Highs: Quality molded parts with a lot of minute detail. Has full branded Osh hood brand as well as Michelin tires!
Lows: Anyone wanting to do a covered cargo version is going to be unhappy there are no included parts for that.
Verdict: Yet another high production quality kit from Trumpeter. For those doing modern armor it will fill a particular niche, at a cost.

About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)
FROM: CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES

Thanks for the preview.. love the music you're adding to them! This looks like a pretty nice, but very complex, kit. I wonder how much it'll go for in HK? Hopefully under $50! Hisham
