I'm hopping on this one or I will try to, taking imo a risk with some new things like 3d printed parts + resin. Hopefully the clear parts look good. Stuff is also in production so afaik nobody has gotten their kit yet.

Since last week there is an unboxing video, is already linked here under the kit. Looks great, especially the tail is awesome.

What I don't like is that, for example, the fuselage parts are supposed to be butt glued. I'm also worried about the landing gear. I question if the printed parts will safely support the weight?

I have no idea when mine will arrive, but I'm excited as hell. 😄
No question, it must be the splinter camo! The masks from DN-Models are already here. 😉

I think I remember that the devs said that they tested the weight of the landing gear, and iirc they tested with something like an additional kilo of weight before the landing gear finally gave in.

As for the fuselage parts, I think I might explore using custom guide pins, to avoid stressing with the work of gluinging the big parts together, and maybe reinforcing the glue work this way by adding guiding pins, to avoid simply gluing two butt sides together (no idea if the glue could ever come undone. I think super glue is bad against shear forces, so if you bump a model into a table, perhaps two previoulsy glued parts might snap off each other.

Heh, I learned recently that, if you press two parts together, gluing with super glue, it goes hard surprisingly fast, probably because the surface area of the glue becomes thin as opposed to being a ball of liquid. I will make sure to never ever use a large blog of superglue, unless, the two parts are already in good contact (as if relying on capillary reaction for the glue to seep inwards).

I wonder how super glue debonder will react to resin (!). Seems to me that, debonder will soften injection moulded plastic (which is unfortunate).
