Mine arrived a couple of weeks ago from Dragon USA. It is a very nice kit. I love the low sleek lines of these tank hunters.

I've been admiring this one in the box all week. I'm very pleased with the support structure for the side skirts that mounts on the front mudguards. Previous kits all depict this as a solid block, when it was actually a hollow square tube bent together from sheet metal and welded. Previously, one had to replace this with photoetch to properly show the open end (facing the center), but Dragon has done this in beautifully molded thin styrene. This is the kind of detail that could easily have been skipped, as it's hardly a glamorous feature, and I am seriously impressed with the finesse of Dragon's kit engineering.

I agree, this is a great looking kit in the box and can't wait to start it for the "Workhorse" campaign.
