there was no debate. mick from oz said it was a rib short and we
(including myself) went home, checked and agreed. my plans were from a
Scale Models International so should be by Ray Rimmel. i can't
remember what scale mine were in but i will recheck with interest. it
was spot on in other respects so i remember being surprised at an
obvious omission.

otherwise this, and indeed all the other eduard kits are excellent and
worth forking out for (despite my protests above increases). Look for
a synopsis of the M-S type L when i get time.
