Hi guys,I just got this kit from shop,the SKP model's 1/35 ACV Dorchester,the serial number's SKP060,there're some inject and resin parts inside,it's a very cool truck and i'm try to built it right now,but i have some problem in building process right now,i measure the kit,overall dimensions 16.1x6.6x5.8cm.
But i check the wikipedia,the specifications list's 6.1x2.36x2.9m,reducing to 1:35 scale's 17.428x6.742x8.285cm,so which one's correct ?SKP model or wikipedia?

There was quite a lot of discussion about the size over on Missing Lynk. It would be worth checking out the threads.

Interesting that you should bring this up given that AFV Club have also announced they will be releasing this subject. Co-incidence maybe, I think not.......

I'ts already been noted that of the few threads you've started they are all about competing kits to AFV Club and it's pretty obvious you have some connection with them.

Why don't you tell AFV Club staff this kind of behaviour does the company no good whatsoever. Regardless if you are right or wrong this underhand tactic doesn't actually persuade people to buy AFV Club kits over other manufacturers. In fact I'd say it has the opposite result, it puts people off buying and supporting a company which has to stoop to this kind of tactic.

It's a shame as AFV Club kits, like many other manufacturers, are on the whole very good, get good reviews and are popular with model makers. Tell them it really doesn't need this kind of behaviour to tarnish its image.
