Hi Kevin

Thanks for the update on this kit. I'd prefer it to be in an "aircraft" scale (i.e. 1:32) - but, nevertheless, I think I can see myself getting one of these!

All the best

This is a "labor of love" by another modeler that MiniArt has taken over to his delight and ours.

This s great! Luft 46... An R-5 (S-51) is what is also needed; to counter it.

Looking forward to this one, and am optimistic at the price of it. Looking at hobbyeasy, a full interior tank by MiniArt is $46, with a whole lot more tooling and plastic than this little hummingbird.

Good times,
