JB Border is one of those companies that has come onboard very recently
Spiros it also makes me wonder just how bad the stuff from the sixties was before Tamyia got popular, been so long I've forgotten
I have the hull of the Border offering almost complete. Very thin plastic that's somwhat soft, easy to sand/file/carve and reacts wonderfully with LPC. Molding is sharp and detail abounds. The major hull components are a bit fiddly to assemble, for instance the roof took about an hour and a half to fit but everything else has gone very well. The suspension will even articulate a few degrees if care is taken with gluing. F2 and earlier MK IV's had a step on the left fender that Border gives you in a ridiculous PE format. I hate PE with the intensity of the sun so the old Tammy kit came to the rescue with a plastic step that was thinned down. Roadwheels are well molded but carry an unnaturally sharp outer edge and benefit from sanding and a swipe or two from a hobby knife, an operation eased considerably by the softer plastic.
Border takes a novel approach to the two in one problem with the turret as F2 and earlier models had vision ports in the hull sides while the G and later did not, see the last picture. Overall this has been quite enjoyable to work with and I think it'll build up well
