This kit has the same old 5cm issue as Dragon 6719, D7 with 5cm. I picked up the Eduard 35308 photo etch kit and most pieces are for the trailer, which is not used, so I'll only use about 20% of that kit, with the rest for practice. Also, there are a few metal barrels out there, I got the Jordi Rubio because that's what the vendor had in addition to Eduard, but not much ammo or other aftermarket.

I have built the gun in a couple of kits, and it is lacking. The only ammo set I am aware of is Verlinden. I have one set left, and with the demise of Verlinden, I am now coventing it like gold.

Oh goody, another one-off that is barely a footnote. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that literally EVERYTHING is seemingly available, but I can't see this one making Dragon any real coin as it was simply an (almost) one-off. It just seems to get silly after awhile. A new and updated PAK 38 would have been nice.
