Good clean fun.
This, my first Trumpeter model, was a joy to build: beautifully clean parts that fit together really nicely; very little that needs to be cleaned up; and, for the most part, a quick and easy build. I constructed the kit in a few hours, snatched in chunks throughout the the day, about a month ago (on Jan 2nd, to be precise). The quality of the instructions is pretty good as well, even with a few labelling and graphical errors , being mostly very straightforward to follow.
The Zimmerit on this kit is integral to the moulding of the model, and is both rather uniform and quite subtle, being in very shallow relief. It's probably more true to scale than some other example, but I feel it's too regular, and not quite visible enough at a glance. Perhaps for some things to work when scaled down they need to be a little exaggerated? I'll be intrigued to see how it compares, when the models are finished, with the home-made Milliput Zimmerit on my Fujimi Elefant. The latter isn't the best for all sorts of reasons, but I currently prefer it, because at least it's very obvious!
