Glad to see that at least one company remembered that WWl started 100 yrs ago next year. The model has complete interior, too. I was hoping Dragon or Bronco had plans for WWl armor, but Meng beat them to it. Maybe these guys will catch on.

Italeri has announced FT-17 a few months ago as well.

If I was to buy one, I'd probably go with Meng.

Hi

Terry doesn't allow direct linking to images on his site, never has done.

Here is the relevant page, scroll down to last item. I have say this is old new news as its been up on there for about a month I believe.

Nope, your timing is prefect since was just trying to remember this tidbit just a day or 2 age. Better twice than not at all.

Yes indeed, I have been following both with great interest along with Takom's 1/16 FT-17.
