The PE is over engineered to the point where for the "finished look" is no better than the old kit with decent PE like WEM or GMM. They fixed a piece here or there but neglected a piece here or there as well. Six of one, etc.
Bruno Schilzeth did a review of it for Fine Scale Modeler. I'm the one he mentions that gave him an older Tamiya Yam kit to compare.
: Recommendation of old Tamiya 78030 kit versus
: the newer tooling. The old kit seems to
: have retained its value probably because new
: kit is so expensive. Which do the experts
