Very Nice model BUT VERY STRESSFUL to make - The GUN final look made get's 5*,BUT the trouble i had making it is my product rating & NO FIGURES INCLUDED!..
This has the GOOD the bad & the ugly to it,As clint eastwood said!.. THE GOOD = I bought this on offer a bargain £12.99/Look's Nice when finished/Moveable tow bars & firing height poles. THE BAD = TOO MANY Tiny part's!... which could of be moulded on in the factory instead of being included to glue on,So beware! if you have got big fingers/clumsy these tiny pieces will STRESS you OUT!,Like thy did to me even though i have only got small/medium fingers and i struggled sticking them on EVEN USING TWEEZER'S!..,Also beware when gluing near the poles for changing height of the gun,It tell's you not to glue,But some glue must of dripped onto these pieces when i was making mine & i didn't realised until i tried to alter the height of gun for firing motion,So i had to do a bit of a customised job on mine to get the gun at angle shooting up,SO BEWARE when adding the ajustable arm bar's. THE UGLY = 1- On the box it show's soldier's so i was expecting these in the box,NO there WASN'T any soldier's included!...BAD ADVERTISING!..,So i you have to buy some!..Trumpeter do have a M252 (us modern marines) mortar crew kit what are idea for the gun. 2 - INSTRUCTIONS = NOT very clear - Like where part's go/How the main big wheel's brake's should go OR THE RIGHT WAY ALSO some pieces are NOT EVEN SHOWN!... ON THE INSTRUCTIONS!..,Like the cable wind which is on the right arm of the gun toward's the end / ALSO the shell rest piece which is used for resting a rocket shell before being fired / And the POLE used for pushing in the shell's into the gun. I ONLY FOUND OUT WHAT THESE PART'S WAS!... When looking on you tube for photos painting the gun the in the right places & correct colour's (iraq war beige & black) i went for,And i came across a photo with the pieces shown in the photo. OVERALL VERDICT = A REALLY NICE ITEM when made & painted BUT THE VERY TINY PIECES-POOR INSTRUCTIONS-NO SOLDIERS INCLUDED WHEN THEY ARE SHOWN ON THE BOX-PIECES NOT LISTED WHERE THEY GO IN THE INSTRUCTION'S Let's this kit model down,So hence the 3 star SO if you don't like stressful model kit's avoid this or YOU must have a LOT of patient when building this kit.Ps i am a adult as well.
