Yeah, it's going to be an expensive summer... :)

AZ has some interesting decal options (NASA! :D ), while the MPM has a wealth of stores options... I think I'll buy both and compare ;)

Great news re the Cobra's, I'l be getting a few of these. As an aside if Eduard intend releasing a PE detail set, I do hope they do some research first and not just bung a whole load of parts with no relevence to the accuracy of the kit.

Is there by any chance a japanese aftermarket/rerelease on the market or close future? Has been long without any news since their initial release... the Cobra has such a variety of nice camo's...

 

Thanks!
