SUMMARY
Highs: First model of this vehicle nice exterior detail
Lows: full interior isn`t much without the engine low parts count
Verdict: It will most likely build up to be a good model, but i think that the size of the box and the text "full interior" are a bit misleading.

Note that the rear tow-hook is conspicuous by it's absence, there is just a hole in the chassis! You may want to add the front hawser too.

What issues exactly? I noticed the missing color specs but is there anything else? Thanks for the heads-up!
