Thanks for a great review.

I ordered my "package" two days ago - now I'm even more eager to receive it and getting started!

And yes, it is difficult to choose only two schemes out of this wonderful selection! We can only wish that Eduard will follow up with an E-3 / E-4 / E-7 Profipack soon.

Cheers

Hi Rowan,

Excellent review!

I can't wait to have the Royal Class "Emil" in my hands. The picture with the cup is excellent too!

Hi Rowan

nice Review (as always)! and I agree with Jean-Luc

The 007-Box is great. Though you better shouldn't shake it as there is ample space in it to make the sprues damaging each other.

BTW for the Romanian machine check the lates LiF!! ... Agent Orange. This is one I like to do.

I am happy that the Brassin wheels include the tailwheel as mine broke when the model slipped from the desk ... otoh (IMHO) the resin replacements are not better ... well I better say it the other way round: the plastic wheels are as good as the resin replacements. The only thing better is the backside/brake area that is plain in plastic and needs the PE to equal up with Brassin. Sadly Eduard also chose Metzeler for the resin wheels .. I hoped for a 2nd companies product.


cheers

Great review as usual Rowan! Too bad Eduard did not create a package like this for their 1/32 kit
