I hope they make a better job of it than JC Wings did.....their Mk 1 didn't even have the cargo door detailed.

Let's hope so, they can't do much worse than the smaller corgi one.

There is an album with photos on my Facebook page. Indeed it seems as if the model has a HDU fitted. A shame as the rest of it looks very good.

Yes, I got a snotty message from the seller on FB for pointing out the fact that it had a hdu, lost sale due to poor attitude, c'est la vie

We need to see a photo of an actual production model to confirm though. I think the photo's we have seen to date may be a Pre Pro model.....the box artwork would seem to be correct at least.

Maybe .... they're going to produce a K2 ? :roll:
