This particular kit is now long out of production.
When you can find them it's usually at the cost of an arm and a leg (sometimes a few internal organs as well)
if you ever wanted an...experience in kit building, aside from wooden model ships,
this beastie would certainly qualify as one for sure.
if I was to impart one piece of advice it would be to do a lot of zen modelling before tackling it.
Meaning that a great deal of thinking about the build before attacking it.
This would be a good idea if you have never dealt with a kit of this type before.
