Very informative and in-depth review, Darren. This looks like a nice kit. I guess that it's time DML re-releases its German Communications Center. It would fill up the empty space quite nicely.

Unfortunately the quality of decals is very poor, they break very easely... some plastic parts are very fragile too, I broke many of them...

Thank you for the comments guys. Reference the plastic I see no reason why it should be better or worse than any other plastic kit as it feeels OK to me. The decals I cannot comment on as I have yet to try them and if I do encounter issues I will update the review.

Nice review. I like the kit, but I also found the decals to be rather shabby, and also my kit had a warped cab floor, but it looks like there are two, not too sure how different they are. One major annoyance was the single bag holding the sprues was so tight and overfilled that all the flat parts were "banana'd" so I had to flatten them back out. All in all I am happy with the kit though!
