Great kit. Very detailed.
I like that you can choose the different configurations, and chose wether to use the brass prop or the the plastic one. A very easy to build kit. There are some very small parts, so make sure you clip the parts out over the box or a piece of paper. The hull comes in two halves, bottom and an option of two tops. There was no warping ( as can happen sometimes with long pieces.) the parts went together well. There are some spare parts that are not in the instructions. A small brass prop and 4 buffers that fit onto the upper hull near the rear access hatch. I guess these were for the rescue sub. They must have decided against including it in the kit. It's no real loss as I wouldn't have used it anyway. Delivery was quick and it was well packaged. Overall I'm very pleased with my new 688i :)
