Sd.Kfz. 263 - 6 rad

Manufacturer: MarS (Kit No. 7208)

It's very difficult to say when I have seen the best resin kit ever, but I'm getting close to it with this one. I hesitate to say that it is the best, because I don't want to do an injustice to any of the other very fine kits out there, but this kit is absolutely fantastic.

The resin quality is some of the best I have ever experienced. There are absolutely no airholes or bubbles anywhere, the resin is hard, but not brittle, and the detail is outstanding. I very much like resin kits which include many parts, because then it seems more like a model "kit" as opposed to a die-cast, which only needs paint. As is apparent in the scan, the detail is abundant and very crisp. I am uncertain about the scale of the kit. The only reference I have is the Wydawnictwo Militaria volume #32, and the tabular dimensions for the vehicle do not match the drawings. If I follow the drawings, then this vehicle hull looks about 1mm too long, but if I follow the tabular data, then it is about 1mm too short. But it is also difficult to measure without the kit having been built. I will check it again after I construct it. No decals are included, but the instructions are much better than most other resin kits I have seen.
