I would like to know your pros and cons about the company millicast. I know that they are a company that makes resin kits,but what I would like to know is,what is the quality of their kits?
Is it worth the money they are charging?
Also,would you know who does the best resin kits?
Thank you.

Having built many of Milicast's resin kits, I can recommend them wholeheartedly. While it is true that some of their very early kits suffered from warpage and broken parts, this is certainly not the case nowadays. The range is immense, casting very good, and level of detail excellent. As far as price is concerned, they are splendid value for money.
As an aside, if you were considering World War I subjects, your best source without a doubt, is another UK company, WD Models (wdmodels.com).

I have not yet tried their kits (and I have my eye on their Centurion ARV2, AVRE and BARV, which I will buy without hesitation when I can) but I do have some of their figures. Beautifully designed, sculpted, and cast. Also a good company to deal with; I recommend them.
