actually, not that bad. I find them to be very good for their time, but
they do need a lot of paint to look good. The construction, however, is
pretty good.

Of the snetinel kits, the only one that I think looked bad was the Sentinel
FAZZ, and even then, that kit looks good. the Z+ is still one of th most
kick ass glue kits I've ever seen.
