Really a nice review, Jessica.
These look like very fine sets that I should like to own for my unbuilt Hobbycraft kit. Unfortunately, after checking it out, I find the cost of these to be prohibitive. The cockpit alone, which one might not even see in the finished kit, is way more money than cost of the kit. I'd really have to want it, to be able to rationalize the expenditure.

But, a really well done review

It's up to each of us to decide exactly how much our finished model is going to cost, and whether that cost can be supported. It's up to the aftermarket to offer these goodies to tempt us

If I were buying these, I'd get the cockpit and the cargo bay sling seats (which I didn't get a chance to review). The tail feathers and engine are nice, but I don't like to show my models' lines spoiled by opened bits or deflected control surfaces so they don't really appeal to me.

It helps that I got my kit seriously on sale, so I feel that I can afford to splash out a bit on aftermarket for it.
