Where are you seeing the Sulaco and survey vehicle? I'm only seeing the dropship and APC, plus the derelict and the space jockey

Hmmmm, bad news. Not getting great reviews from the US. Apparently the drop ships windows are only painted black, not clear! If konami can manage clear windows on their tiny kits why oh why cant they do it on something six inches long.

It really pisses me off when opportunities such as this get wasted !

Well unless there is somethign to see inside the windows, there is little point in making them transparent! Looking at the photos, there are some seriously poor mould lines.

Personally I've happy with my Halcyon Dropship from a few years back...

Indeed! Clear windows look so much better than painted ones.
