Nice review Bill! I'm glad DML put out this version and I held out on the Sturer Emil.

Jeff, Jim, thanks for the comments. I received the usual GreatModels newsletter yesterday indicating these kits have been shipped to the US although GM reported they'd been short-shipped, so it looks like the kits are on the market here in the States now.

I bought one today.I saw all you saw too.I was wondering about the color of the seperate bags of pretrimmed magic tracks.
the instructions show a top plan of a left and right link,and I would need a magnifiyer for the first one out of a bag to decide which bag is left or right.
I hope I don't mix them.

I'm guessing that's why they went with the two color difference on the links, the only real difference is on the pins interior vs. exterior and I agree that with the mk1 eyeball it's virtually impossible to tell the difference.

Gents. I already have these at my shop, and they arrived yesterday. Sold the first one today, and I took a sample for myself

As soon as I get the kiddos to bed, I'm open this baby up and have a looksy

I have 2 more kits if anyone wants to order, just let me know. They are so new, they are not up on my site yet.....lol

Excellent review, Bill. Well done !!

Cheers !!
