     Purchased in the middle of 2006 from an online Hobby Shop at a small discount. The eagerly awaited (well, at least by me) the MPM He-177 in 1/48th scale. Who would have thought we would have something like this a few years ago? So, there was an old vacform but so what? Injection moulded spells accessible. It is beautifully produced, and being Czech you just know there is going to be a shed load of aftermarket resin and photoetch to follow - and there was. Accessories include (to date):

A glimpse in the box - stuffed with goodies. A glossy colour sheet illustrating the options included for markings. The reverse of the same sheet. A nice touch. The Eduard-style cardboard insert with resin and decals.

Looking like a bizarre fish - the two fuselage sides - externals. Two fuselage sides - internal. One bag of sprues. The second bag of sprues. Looks like tail components.
