Hello BD

international order is 4200 yen, rather than 2800, as shipping is EMS

shipping is always emotive and is dependent in ratio to the number of products purchased and shipping threshold.

that said, item price is 2800,
shipping is always dependant on location.

but, it is a fair point that you make!

,,,and, of course

it is still cheaper than some crazy ebay prices for auctions

... you know who i mean ;o)

Looks good! The prop blades need some work though, and that would probably depend on the builder's skill.

There goes another few hundred quid/dollars/bucks!!!

Does anyone know what the canopy is made of? Wonder if it can be "Futured" for better clarity. :-)

Marvin maybe you could try the airalex approach?

maybe see what effect it has on the bottom the canopy, where any tribulations would be less noticable?

I purchased this kit and a bunch others from their site, and received everything today. I'm blown away by the level of detail on their AFV kits. The Stryker kit is just beautiful and rivals some of the best of DML's Panzer Korps later releases. Frankly, everything I got in today is just amazingly cast and with an unbelievable amount of detail.

The Henschel is also a very nice kit as well. It comes with plenty of thinly scribed panel lines, wheel well detail, beautifully cast seats, and very nice landing gear. It even comes with a tiny 3 milimeter instrument panel with gagues and actual dials. How did they do that! The canopy is an opaque resin, similar to Anigrand's canopies, but just a bit less clear. I think a coat of future will clear it up nicely though. Seriously, for a garage kit, they really do give Anigrand and a run for their money. The kits I got look as nice if not better than anything Dameya as put out. Granted, I don't have a lot of Damyea kits, and I kind of wish they'd sell their products like others, but for now there's plenty of money to be spent with Matuso Kasten.

The best part of this purchase was dealing with their helpful staff. I was given prompt attention, plenty of communication about when casting was done and when everything shipped, as well as good news about the Global Hawk being re-released. And the bonus kits I received in the box also made up fore more than the shipping charges. A pleasant experience which I wanted to pass along to everyone. Can't say enough good things about Matuso Kasten!
