    Very good set and worth every penny of the cost.

  2. Lieutenant T. (verified owner)

    This is an incredible set, full of little details and many hours of construction time. It’s a truly excellent homage to an amazing historical vehicle. I loved every bit of this process, and I hope Cobi will make more large scale kits in the future.
