_ORGINPUB:
Armorama

This as you can see is not the conventional review we usually run on Armorama, this will be a picture heavy look at the contents and a few comments on aspects that I like. The tracks are a real high water mark for me as they are supplied as individual track links, the track links are held together with cut to length metal pins which should save a lot of time. The tools are supplied without moulded on clamp detail that are supplied in photo etch. While talking of photo etch I am pleased to see that Classy Hobby have not gone OTT on it. I am pleased to see that a metal cable has been included with this offering of the Luchs rather than a string alternative. I also like seeing inclusions such as the jerry cans and water canteens included in the model to dress it up. So this is a first look at the contents and will be followed by a build blog which will be published later as a build review
SUMMARY
Highs: Very well packaged and a well laid out model from what I can see.
Lows: Nothing at this time.
Verdict: Let's see how the build goes.

Comments

Is Classy Hobby associated with any other plastics company? Or are they completely independent?

I know the history of the owner, but I believe they are an independent operator.

Looks to have all the bells and whistles. Hopefully, this won't price it out of most builders' budgets.
