Detail is on par with most 1992-1995 import. Samhongsa drive is exceptional like the SD-40's from Oriental Limited's 1987-1989 runs. Paintwork is excellent but no where the quality of today's Korean factory paint. Decals instead of pad lettering etc.

For the money using P&D details and a milled brass frame the Red Caboose is a better model.. albeit very fragile. I am not sure if the hood was too wide on the CIL's or not. Somewhere I have a photo of one.. where I have
