Yeah, the box was damaged (as you received it) on arrival to us, of course it did a lot of traveling so kudos for Trumpeters packaging

Thanks for a great review and looking forward to seeing the engine set.

Hehehe I already guessed something like that. But no biggie as indeed Trumpeter does some bombproof packaging.

And the review of the engine will come shortly after I receive it which hopefully will be coming week.

I've just recently bought this kit and said, "finally a 1/35 styrene tractor kit!" and then noticed the 100% void of engine detail.
But I like the track assembly configuration

As I said in the review also I think it is a bit of a curious choice from the people at Trumpeter to leave out the engine. I was already planning to buy the LZ Models as I expected it to be better then Trumpeters engine... and you know... it is.
And I hear you on the track assembly. It is cleverly done. When the LZ models engine arrives I'm going to start on it.
