About kit.

Everything is fine. All neatly and accurately cast. Fit in perfectly. Added chain, pickaxe, shovel and replaced the mirror on the civilian version. I did a civilian version of the machine that works in the American heartland.


The model as always was painted with acrylic paint, tinted oil paints and MIG pigments.
