"This was one of the best Lego Technic builds I ever had. Terrific style and so many mechanical moving parts. Just one: the Mercedes style gull-wing opening doors. Comes in two colors and I added some parts in purple of my own. Also, I dropped the tank treads in favor of wheels (taken from my collection). And I didn't like the decals included which I felt just messed up the beautiful lines of the jeep. In addition, I added extra parts for decoration such as head lights, swivel seat, opening roof and trim to improve the overall beauty of the car's lines.
On the downside, I have never built a Lego Technic product with so many missing parts and items I don't think were packed in the box or even exist. Fortunately, I have a big, organized collection of standard Lego parts. And I turned to them more and more. Also, Lego could have been a little more generous and supply the pieces in numbered bags (such as is done in the Porsche and Bugatti). It was very frustrating to go through all the trays of parts I set up in order to minimize the search time (and the frustration).
All in all, this was a great build and terrific outcome (as you'll see in the pictures) though some frustration was involved."
