Reminds me of my first 1/72 Hasegawa Sdkfz 251 when I was 10....with the overlapping road wheels and my clumsy mitts when I had finished there was more glue than plastic....
yes agreed, I agree with PE when it's used to replace a kit part that is too thick or wrongly shaped, but for the sake of it I can't fathom it, those pe bits could have been molded with the rest of the plastic.'Kin 'Ell madness.
the pe suspension parts were not necessary at all, they could have made them in plastic far more effectively, but there may be a grain of truth in what Robin says, they can say we have so many PE parts to go in the kit.The question is why??? not you sticking it together, but for whatever person came up with the idea in the first place
My basic Vickers has a small selection of PE, none of it that fiddly thank gawd.
