Hi

I just purchased of of these kits from my LHS but it didn't come with an instruction sheet. I'm looking for an online source, anybody know of one?

thanks

Hi Bob

The shopkeeper ought to be able to help you out. Otherwise, I think Stevens International are the North American distributors - try dropping them a line.

All the best

Hi Bob

As it is a Chinese product I would rather try e.g. Easy Hobby, Lucky Model or some other far east companies (some do advertize on this site .... )

HTH

cheers

Hi

I sent an email to Kinetic Hobbies themselves and they answered promptly (the next day given the time zone) and I received a very polite email with the instruction sheets and decal guides attached as 10 pages of pdf's...very nice. The kit seems really fine with reasonably good engraved detail, nice rivets and a slightly 'stressed' look to the skin in places where you'd expect there to be some stressing. It's not overdone, barely noticeble, but it's there. I think it's going to be a great build and lots of fun.

I saw this one sitting in the LHS. Remembering you comment, I decided it will be mine. Now it is. I like it. When some decent AM stuff comes out for it, it will be built.

Thanks
