Trumpeter Challenger 2 KFOR review

in the past ive built kits by trumpeter like my m1 panther which is a remotely controled mine clearing abrams minus a turret and it was quite a good kit, so when i was in my local model shop and saw a cheap Trumpeter Challenger 2 and couldn't resist it. today i started to build the kit turret first and so far im not too impressed with the standards of the kit, it was a bloody nightmare trying to fix the upper and lower turret as the main gun trys to prevent the two from joining correctly, when the upper and lower turret did come together the joins were bad and obviously in need of filling and sanding, also the smaller details on the turret didnt really fit as i hoped they would so they too will need attention,

i will give you more information on this kit as i progress, hopefully it wont all be bad

Man, if you build, why don't you show it on your vBench?
