I promised myself … if this kit ever came out again, I’d grab one. So, after reading the review … and being a man of my word … I jumped online and proceeded to the checkout button! ✅

I believe the truck and gun model have previously been released as stand alone items, but regardless of that I really do like this offering from Dragon Models



Darren

Just to clarify for everyone, based on your comment, while the truck and gun were seperate kits, the actual kit you review was a previous CyberHobby "White" box release.



There seems to be some photo-etched that was in the initial release, that does not seem to be included in the Dragon kit. This would inlude the bracing for the gun mount, front grill Opel Blitz name plaque, etc.

This kit seems to be a recent trend by Dragon Models to re-release the original "limited" edition CyberHobby White box releases without all the details as Dragon kits.

Hi Kevin,
I just double-checked the box and the PE parts you mention are all there. I was fully aware of the re-re-re-release when I purchased it. Still, it seems to be a nice kit.

thanks for the update, I did not see them in Darren's review, and good to know. I have been eyeing the kit as well.
