Title: The 1/35 scale Roden Holt tractor.
Post by: Olieslagers on June 14, 2018, 12:00:06 AM
A highly anticipated kit but a huge disappointment. The quality is what we would have expected in the 1960's. The moulding is poor, many inaccuracies, etc.No sliding molds used with this kit!.
The tracks are impossible to fix due to the mold release marks (for my skill level). If you add all the corrections and potential aftermarkets add on (if ever available} you may just buy the Resicast kit which is one of their best. Sorry, but I guess I have been spoiled with WNW kits.

Disappointing but good to know. Building the 1914 pattern Rolls Royce at the moment and itís a bit frustrating. Hopefully will all come together. Bettter start saving for the Resicast holt.
Cheers
