This is my first ROG kit so I was not certain what to expect. They do not shrink wrap their kits, they simply tape them shut. i like this idea and find it just a bit "greener" than the old shrink. Since I bought this off eBay it took a week to get here but I was very pleased when it arrived. If you decide to get one you will be as well.
First off are the chassis trees. Here we see Tamiya-ish moldings divvy'd up amongst 4 silver styrene trees. SUPERB castings that make up the running gear are here for you gawk at
Next up are the Interior/Exterior trim trees. Once again, SUPERB moldings cast in three trees of an off white styrene.
Next up are the one chrome tree the clear parts and EXCELLENT tires..
Next Up.... What A Body!

Off white plastic that needs very little prep before primer can be applied. Her curves are all in the right places. Stunning at ANY angle.
Next: Instr sheet, decals box and final notes...

Comprehensive decal sheet with markings for many different plates and all gauges and exterior markings are represented.
The box has a great graphic rendering and overall appeal..
I'm having a hard time not starting this and my modelers ADD is kicking in but I need to finish about 20 other projects..
But should you decide to build this kit I am certain you'll find it as rewarding as i feel it must be.
