Ho-hum. I've seen much better.

And not cheap either. The Rubicon 1/56 Tiger I is £5.00 GBP cheaper for what I would suggest is a far superior model. The Rubicon does need more work to put it together, but it is not particularly onerous and with the options you can produce whatever version you like from the box.

First from Butler in awhile I think.

To be fair, the picture almost certainly does not show the 1:56 version.

Having just seen some 1:56 scale Butlers models in the flesh I would imagine it is just as bad as people fear. Definitely not worth £5.00 GBP more than a Rubicon kit.

Hope you didn't buy them, Vigilant.

No. A friend chanced his luck on 3 items not made by anyone else. A couple of vehicles and a gun. I'll stick to plastic and resin for the foreseeable future.
