I will second Gerry's statement. Meikraft has produced some interesting
kits over the years. I have known the owner personally and this business
has had some severe cash flow problems. So severe that many who are
familiar are amazed that the business is still alive. The Gotha G.V has
been an intended release from here for over 5 years now. If you want one
of these kits, buy it off the shelf in a store.
