StreatBeast really has a good idea going with the total kit concept. Its just too bad they execute it so poorly that it only barely resembles what its supposed to be. I guess they'd rather go on selling very poor fidelity replicas rather than re-tool and build a high fidelity kit.
I understand from a little research that the company has improved their customer service so that at least most of their customers are getting all the parts needed to finish the kit but, they're still using high pressure sales tactics and mis-representing the skill needed to build the kit. The poor novices that fall into their trap usually wind up in over their heads with predictable results.
