2017-02-13 20:26:54Having spent the last two years building this kit, the finished model is absolutely stunning and enormous. Standing almost a metre long it is an imposing centrepiece on my dining table. The instructions are fairly clear and do give an indication of how to Put the kit together though there are times when it causes some trouble with later stages, requiring you to assemble some component only to find that it has to be removed because it has obstructed the next step. Also, none of the components are labelled so you have to spend a while trying to figure out which part is a and which is b. I personally found this lack of detail to be challenging and made the build even more enjoyable. If you've built plastic kits before, you should find this kit as easy to put together and just as satisfying. The end result is impressive and I get a great deal of pleasure enjoying the fruit of my labour. I highly recommend taking your time and make sure you keep part assemblies covered to avoid tarnishing and Wear gloves, fingerprints are annoying to remove at the end! In summary, the best kit I've ever had the pleasure to put together from a great supplier, very nice people always ready to help. Now I'm looking at getting the C57!
2016-11-07 13:05:48This model is beautiful, the parts and details are amazing! Thanks ModelSpace!
2016-11-07 13:00:39This is a beautiful kit. All parts are cast - brass and white metal and pre-formed/bent/shaped brass, all the pieces so far are fantastic. This is a very well thought out and produced kit. All you have to do is bolt/screw, super glue/epoxy the parts together, really easy, or for the advanced modeler, soldering. The potential for mild detailing or super detailing is great. Just study the video/picture links here; http://forum.model-space.co.uk/default.aspx?g=posts&t=10862 So far, I'm up to pack three, every part so far is awesome. Everything so far is so well engineered/produced/manufactured that the price is quite reasonable. If you're a steam locomotive fan, with the means, but not the expert modeling skills, you can handle this kit. Join up, follow the members builds and you will have an impressive locomotive model. Take the plunge, as I did, and enjoy. Best regards, mwb
2016-11-07 12:57:29This is my second DeAgostini build, after the Zero. I was expecting nothing short of fantastic, and I was not in the least disappointed! The brass is perfectly cut and cast, and the zinc parts are cast perfectly as well. I am only on despatch 4, and am eagerly awaiting all the rest. Thank you DeAgostini, for another great model!
