Ola guys

Yes thanks for the comments. It is actually a pitty that the kit is not more accurate since the detail is quite pretty overall. And again it will built up as a nice representation of the sFH18 but it simply is not the most accurate.
Building stages started but have not yet found time to post the pics I took.

More to follow

I don't know what trumpeter kits cost in Italy here they are relatively cheap and you get quite a good model for that money.

How does it compare to the DML one? Should buy both?

Lovely guy Dr. House isn't he?
Really curious what your efforts will be with this gun.

@ Andras
Well I don't have the DML gun but what I gather from other reviews and the pictures and dimensions I have seen from the DML gun and compared to my reference the DML gun wins it from Trumpeter when it is about accuracy. Also DML comes with nice extra's. But then again..... The Trumpeter kit comes with some stuff that the DML kit doesn't have. Which were quite normal and often seen when in Tow mode

With friendly greetz

Aye, that's my issue... It'd be nice to have both modes displayed. I guess it answers the question which should be in what mode.
