Merely added this kit into the database for the sake of completeness... other than that, what a totally worthless release. Much like anything Dragon lately... But unfortunately I'm starting to get used to that...
The kit is yet another EXTREMELY low effort release to empty our pockets. The kit isn't even trying to reproduce the real thing because that would have actually required some investigation and reproducing new parts (oh Lord, the horror!) to represent the top of this particular vehicle accurately. There was NO superstructure at all, so that would (most likely) mean lots of interior would be visible. And it seems Dragon simply isn't up for doing anything that takes any kind of real effort.
It's also very much in line with Dragon screwing over their loyal customers, seeing how this was once a Cyber Hobby limited edition white box release. On the other hand, looking at what this "new" kit is supposed to go for... I'm guessing the white box edition might actually even be cheaper... LOL(? 🤔 )
@Rui: Odly enough those "real" Smart or Premium Kits are quite often in the 40-50€ price range. Most of them included two full sets of tools (with or without moulded on claps), lots of PE and sometimes metal barrels and amunition. Oh, and most of them depicted vehicles that have actually been more than a draft, scetch or written proposal. 😛

@ Fabian, Yap, that's good but just to damn expensive to me.
