Yes, I am enjoyed to building this kit. I have started to built the suspension and have done some dry fit on some parts...Well...I can say a word only "Amazing" :lol: ...sorry I am using this "WORD".

Beacuse, I had a poorly experience on their 2 Hotchkiss H39 SPG Vehicles...soft details, terrible fitting. After I saw Terry's review & your building process pictures on "Sturer Emil" ...then I got the kit last weekend. They make me very surprising on their improvement work on this kit.

Trumpeter...PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

MY FIRST VOYAGER...I had NO experience on Voyager...I have used Aber, Eduard and Royal before...



Right now...the Voyager is the only one released the "Sturer Emil" PE set for Trumpeter kit... when I opened the Voyager box ...IT'S NOT BAD...the box contains 10 PE frets in different thinkness of brass plate, plus 2 lengths of plastic rod and 1 length of wire...and also came with 3 resin casting Radios, 2 resin casting Jacks for replacement... also...interesting for me...Voyager has provided a small PE spray mask for us... :lol:

Here are the frets pictures...

Fret A



Fret B



Fret C



Fret D

WOW..that is a massive amount of PE!!! I knew the superdetailers would have a field day with this kit.

I will have to check up on the jack issue as I have not added any to my kit.

Thanks for posting pics- I want to try this Voyager set on this kit as well. I 'd say Voyager from my experiences is like LionRoar and Eduard in finesse. But for now it's the only game in town... and maybe they are getting better?

A shot of the Suspension Bar



Trumpeter shown the wrong location for part #6A on Step 1 on their instruction sheet...



See all Suspension Bar are in position. The fitting between the Suspension Bar and the Lower Hull are very good.
