Hi Steve,
Do you mean C57? Or D51?
If you mean C57, then judging by all the reviews (5 stars) it would appear to be a quality kit. Comes pre-painted, so you just have to be aware of fingerprints and glue lines. Oh and of course it's BIG and HEAVY BigGrin

Regards
Gray

I built the D51 and it was one of the best partworks ever.The train is HUGE once finished.The C57 is very similar to the D51 except it is prepainted which does save a lot of time. Would highly recommend one of these trains
