ARMAGEDDON / MACH2
Review of 1/72 Armageddon / Mach2 Models.
Manufactured in France, Mach2 originally is a manufacturer of Airplanes.

I don't know how Armageddon kits are priced in other countries, but in the Netherlands these kits are quite expensive, considering the poor quality of the injection moulding. They use plastic of different and inferior qualities. Sprues are very thick and badly casted. The parts have a lot of flash and are sometimes distorted, etc. Consequently, the parts need a lot of cleaning. The fitting is very poor, most of the time. The quality of the products is considerably less then similar products by other manufacturers and should be upgraded. However, the kits are very rare and interesting for modellers. I would advise these kits only for the more advanced modellers with a lot of patience and experience. With updating and reworking, you may yet achieve a nice result.
Advice to Armageddon / Mach2, please, rework the kits, use better plastic and better moulds.
