55137Re: Ztrack, Plans for 2008
- Jan 2, 2008Well, I have built quite a number of kits of all types including
scratch. On the laser front there are three superb kits to look at -
Robert Ray's - also makes kits for MTL, Jason Alles [Fannocreek] and
Ben "Anemick" and there are others. There are also some brands way
low on the quality scale. These good kits all range from micro ply -
to regular wood - to plastic. Once a kit is finished I think you
would be hard pressed to say one's materials are any better than
another. It is really a case of using the best suited materials for
the kit being built. Alles's plastic wood chip hoppers are almost
dead-on for appearance since the plastic is so thin and smooth - and
he has some clever stiffeners that are prototypical. On the other
hand this material might not be too good for a building's walls etc.
...and so it goes.

"bashing" (read: saying one's better than another) kits, as that can
translate to loss of advert dollars. I don't suspect Rob Kluz of that,
but the situation does exist in our "little" world.
