Re: 1/72 GATO is there a difference between the Revell/Monogram and the Revell/Germany (other than $20)

If you check out

they sell both
kits...R/M is $73 and R/G is $93. I want to order one but if there is
no difference. My 1/72 U-Boat is from R/G and was/is plenty warped.

Both my U-boats are straight...so I'd take the odds at 50/50 and I'd go for the $20 savings.

my rm is just fine also. save your $20 for vitals. lap dances, booze, traffic fines, you know, the essentials.

So in other words nobody knows the difference. Let me clarify though that my U-Boat is fairly straight...just that the hull halves didn't fall together but were spread and needed extra labor to work them together, same as installing the deck I had to spread and squeeze the hull top to make it happen. Thanks for your responses...now how about an answer from someone who can answer the original question.
Thanks

mine needed tweaking a little, too. that's normal for big chunks of plastic. try building a trumpter arrier or bb. unless they were checked for perfection from the factory and shipped temp controlled, i don't think they could stay perfect. temp changes will cause warpage, even if it's a small amount. it's kind of a given.

kit, Importing cost's money. Here is the funnything Hobby Lobby has the RoG kit and if you take the 40% off of it with it a coupon it makes it quite a deal.

RG usually has different decals then the US Revell releases. that and the lousy paper they use for the instructions is about all the difference. Not worth the extra $20.

Ah...I didn't think about the decals issue...although I doubt the US version of the U-Boat had the swastika on the flag...it's flat out illegal to have a swastika in Germany.

Truely a given...I think my worst fitting kit is my 1/24 Airfix Harrier, (being an original 1970s model I'm sure its been through a lot of temp differences).
