My latest kits from Q-modeling are the WAC-CORPORAL and the NIKE-X. I am pleased with their first two kits I built, the MEGA SUPER VEGA and the MEGA MARS SNOOPER. I had planned on building the WAC first, but I misread the instructions and ruined the motor mount...so until I get some more parts, I finished the NIKE-X. I bought this kit at their discounted early buy and it was kit #3. At the discounted 59.95 price, I was somewhat disappointed in the supplied materials. Of course, the kit it is copied from is relatively simple, the even discounted price seems a little steep. I was further disappointed to find out that the decals that REALLY make the NIKE-X were NOT included! You are supposed to MASK and PAINT the markings...although the two wrap-around decals WERE included. The US ARMY decal was included. These decals are some of the STOUTEST I have ever used. I really had trouble getting the BIG wrap-around ones to release from the sheets. Then they would stick RIGHT -AWAY!! I can appreciate strong decals, so I guess a better technique on my part next will suffice. I ended up making the decals MYSELF out of TRIM MONO-COTE!!! TIME-CONSUMING but I am pleased with the result!
