I have the Pontos set and can't complain about it. It's made for the Revell kit and although I am yet to start it, all parts look excellent and well made/thought out. Can't wait to get into it after my current builds - one of which is the HMS Warspite with Pontos set, and it's excellent with good fit and really enhances the look.
I haven't heard a bad review on it - the only detraction I've read is that some of the parts are tiny, and need folding/joining, so it does need a steady hand and PE experience.
Worth having some PE tools too, I've picked up the PE benders and rollers from thesmallshop.com. and couldn't live

Thanks for providing that link. I had no idea where to find those tools, as I have been away from doing plastic models for some years now and haven't kept up with things.
What I need as well is a good set of lighted magnifying glasses for the really small stuff. I've been checking out Amazon and they have a number of options.
