Not to be over dramatic, but I'd planned on getting several HPH kits. Now with their response to your justified complaints about the kit, I'm not so sure.
Please don't let all the negative comments stop you....They are unique limited run resin kits,and some of the best out there.they are "not" nightmares to build.But they can at times tax your basic skills.Not for the inexperienced, and HpH do point this out.
Many of us have faced bigger challenges and frustrations with main line injected kits,As far as the Tigercat is concerned... I 'm sure we will see some innovative solutions,perhaps even from HpH.. and some spectacular builds in the near future.
Keep it fun...Williamj.
