When it rains, it pours! Once there were no Object 279''s in styrene, now we have three, probably more than were ever actually produced of the prototype design. Takom are the latest to release their kit onto the market, and arrive on the scene as well with their first 1/35th kit.

Very nice review Rob.

Voyager has a soon to be released PE detail set for this kit. It won't address the accuracy issues but it will enhance the details on this unique kit.

Thanks Jason, i'm pleased you found it useful. I haven't yet seen the Voyager seen, but the main area any AM set should address is the barrel, as the kit item is crying out to be replaced.

Thank you as well to Darren for publishing and KM Network for providing the review sample. I'll get started on the build log in due course.
