The 1/35 scale CMP F15A Van Lorry by Mirror Models is a challenging build due to lack of clarity in part locations, but experienced modelers can build it into a nicely detailed model.
The kit comes nicely packed in a cardboard box, and each of the gray plastic sprues are individually bagged. On first glance there are many very small parts, and the detail of the molding is good. The parts have very large gateways, or sprue connections, for attaching the part to the sprue. The instructions noted that some of the gates are larger to avoid ejector pin marks, and suggests using a razor saw or scalpel instead of a sprue cutter to remove the parts. The sprue connections are wide but thin, and I didn’t break any of the parts removing when removing them from the sprue.
The kit comes on light gray plastic sprues, along with one bag of clear plastic parts, one bag containing the decals, wire, and small photoetch fret, and one bag containing the four rubber tires. The photoetch sprue is quite thin and is covered with plastic on both sides for protection. The clear plastic parts are relatively thin but still quite thick for this scale.
