Andy,

Well done review. I look forward to reading your build progress.

See Revell's 1/32 Tony review as a comparative review.

Andy,

Well done review. I look forward to reading your build progress.

I have Revell's 1/32 Tony. When I get all my other projects done, I'll put a comparative review up.


Thanks Fred, that should be an interesting comparison. Now all we need is someone to buy the Hasegawa one as well.

Hi Andy

And there was me thinking "Wow! Yoghurt's growing up quick!" (Cool Battlestar avatar! )

I've never bought the Hasegawa 1/32 scale Hien... are you telling me I should? After all, I DO need more kits!

All the best

MDC's or Hannants website both have it, or you can pick it up from any shows MDC are attending. The price is pretty much the same from any of them.

Both the MDC and Hasegawa kits are 1/32nd.
