Your Two Cents: MG AV-98 Ingram

The following are reader's opinions of the MG AV-98 Ingram made by BanDai.

Overall Rating       Well worth getting.
Comments I found that Games Workshop paint did stick to the vinyl sleeves nicely. I also thought on first inspection that the sprues for these parts were in the worst possible spot since they are hard to remove cleanly and yet are right in the middle of the part. Why, I asked myself, didn't they make these sleeves with extra material on the ends that the sprue could connect to? However, my complaint should be amended because these sprue points are hidden in more than half of their locations by armor and body panels, even though this isn't apparent until construction. In some cases, however, these points are still a problem.

Comments I do own an MG Ingram kit. I used to do the previous Ingram kits. But, its nothing like this one. The detail on this one is really good. I would recommend it to anyone who's a Patlabor fan. Or someone who enjoys making mech models.
