Long Review: The Universal Carrier which I received is cast in three parts (the hull and the two sets of tracks - a left and a right). The tracks fit on the body reasonably positively due to some small lugs on the body. There was a minimal amount of excess material (the underside of the body required a little cleaning- it's the moulding plug), and also a small number of bubbles in the resin, which are easily filled. The model captures the look of the carrier rather well, and, although I can't decide whether it is a Mk I or a Mk II (the differences are so slight that it will work as either).
Commentary: I'm certainly interested, and will (once my budget recovers) certainly be looking at getting some more vehicles.
Historical Accuracy: Four Average.
Scale: Four Width-wise it scales out at 1:56, length at 1:51, which I'd say are within tolerable limits for 28mm vehicles, although it IS off the stated scale.
Sculpting: Four Average.
Casting: Four Good.
Sources: Shaun sent me the sample Carrier after spotting the site.
