Hi Tim

Great review! I couldn't resist a sneak peek in the box before forwarding the kit to you and I have to admit it was seriously tempting to hang on to it! I'd forgotten just how impressive a beast the Sunderland is in 1:72.

All the best

So...much...detail...and parts! Amazing model. I look forward to what you do with her.

I must admit all that glorious internal structure - what will be seen? But I still love any company willing to go to the effort of molding it.
