Now all they need to do is make their styrene tires that "weighted" look and they could almost rule out the aftermarket guys share of the pie.

Glad I held out for a Buffalo kit.

Nice review, Darren. The slat armor looks great and much easier to work with than etch.

Thanks for the review

I just got mine a few days ago and it really is a great kit.. You really have to see the bar armour "in person" to realize how thin and fine it is... I hope this opens the way for other kits with such bar armour

Nice review! I can only say it's a very good kit, and together with Roberts reference photos it will be a very good kit!
Now i only hope any aftermarket company will release the additional armour that is used together with the slat armour!
So Pleeeeease come on and do this....any company....

I am jealous. I ordered mine from Lucky way back in February and still no sign of it.
