Picked one up yesterday, very nice kit. You can toss the Tamiya and the overrated Academy kits. Lots of nice detail. The suspension is really nice. If you know what you're looking for and looking at, all the stuff is in there to do the A2 suspension also. They have both types of hub covers. Warning to the ham fisted and less skilled builders, the hub covers are very small and somewhat difficult to get off the sprues. The headlights and guards are a work of art. The fuel tank is the right size, unlike the too long Academy tank, and very detailed. All periscopes are clear plastic and separate. Great kit, got 3 more on the way.
