Response to Just keeping with the Elefant, . . .
Its pointless talking about the details 'that will be on the kit' no one has seen it yet
How you know the tools will be moulded on? They weren't molded on to the body on the Matilda but were seperate. The clamps straps were moulded onto the tools, but then they were on the recent 'market leader's' stug III I just built too
As or tge grab handles, DML moulds solid grab handles onto their Sherman engine deck. I don't recall anyone claiming their moulds are 1970s in quality based on that
Tamiya ae a little simpler, but 99% of the simplifications are things most people would change anyway. How many people replace grab handles with wire or rod? How many sets of tool clamps do Aber, Voyager etc sell to people building DML kits? A lot I imagine, because people like PE clamps
the fact is there is not so much more work in uprading the detail on a tamiya kit than there is on any other kit. A bit more sure, but not a huge amount, and when the base kit is so much more of a pleasure to build it makes the task that much less of a big deal
