Thats a pretty ordinary finish for a $9000 model.
Great subject though!

That's huge! It's not going to fit in my house!

Will this kit be in resin? It will probably take a couple of months just to remove the carrier stubs.

If remember correctly it will be a plastic kit. Even so the sprues will be huge.

I really hope a review of it will be on PMMS some day and someone here should build one. Ian, you have a locomotive going right now, why not something other on rails?

Siim,
I would love to build a plastic injection kit of this but if it is being distributed by VLS i don't think I will be able to afford it!

And if it ain't big enough, you could add the crane

The height of 17.5m works out to 19.68 inches in 1/35 scale!
