A very good review by Bill as always. I don't really see the point of releasing this kit at all because, as you mentioned, it only has 8 new parts and the main differences can be achieved with the standard kit and some minor scratch building. It's good that some minor issues have been corrected but not the real ones like the trestle, tread plate, equillibrators, etc.

Great review none the less!

Thanks Sebastian! I agree with you that this one is a bit hard to justify as its own kit and would've thought if CH was going to go through the trouble of adding parts for this particular variant that they could've gone ahead and added parts for the floor and the gun to correct those areas but they chose not to.
