Surely it too expensive for Dragon to add couple of pieces of plasticard for radiator and to make fenders..so I have much thanks to DML for providing this limited edition model. Now my collection is complete and I have much thanks and gratitude to them! ^__^

Julian, I can neither defend nor attack Dragon for doing what any smart business owner would: stretching out the number of kits they can sell from the same molds.

There are those who have a special affinity for soft skins who will pay for multiple kits. Dragon could have included the extra sprues in a 3-in-1 kit, but they have chosen a different path.

Well said Bill. Even though I have the DML 7/1 earlier released kit I will probably add this one to my stash

Yes, I agree - it's excellent business strategy, never said it wasn't..( just as CitiFinancial has an excellent business strategy of giving out loans at 65%)but like you say they could have released it as a 3 in 1, something they've done in the past with other kits. I am sure it's a beautiful kit, I just find humour in it, that's all.
