Welcome to the list Hirohisa, I hope we can continue to help.

I noted in the mini review the Pup is larger all round than the
Datafile plans, and asked if anyone thought the plans were undersize.
No one questioned the plans so I guess the kit IS too large. It is in
proportion though!

BTW the Eduard Floh has been released in UK at UK 9.95 pounds (for
reference that was the Eindekkers initial release price). It consists
of around eight plastic parts with a small (for Eduard) pe fret. Looks
alright for the price, but i haven't bought it yet!
