Dragons finest engineers have been at work again
Can't blame them for the lack of reference images on the internet though. The instruction sheet is another matter but a well filled stash seems to solve that problem ...

If their only resource/reference of a vehicle is some vague information on the internet, maybe they shouldn't be doing a model of it...

Personally all that would be secondary if the parts actually fit properly without modification or the instructions which are either misleading, p-lain wrong or simply too freakin' small. Seriously, I shouldn't need magnification to read and see details on instructions, but Dragon produces instructions that make you feel that every inch of paper is begrudged to you and have fun figuring out which side that part really goes to. Great kits that could be so much better with the kit equivalent of a proof reader -wait, THAT's US! Now if only the manufacturers really listened...
