Molding looks superb in the still images. Impressive how they made the hull for waterline and full options.

Already built and painted it. IMHO it's Trumpeter's best moldings yet - the fit is generally very good; even the wood deck is excellently rendered in plastic. However, the PE brass gauge is a little on the heavy side making it difficult to fold the finer parts - like the frames for lifeboat cradles. Pity WEM won't be releasing a PE set for the model now.
