In the 70's I bought mine at Zoody's dirt cheap with my allowance. This year I bought an Elefant kit for $35!

I bought some 2nd hand from a guy in England. The German ones. He asked if I wanted his British ones. "No, thanks." He offered a discount. "Sorry, I'm not interested."

Could you kick me and save me the trouble?

At last years Seattle show raffle I won three! Which means I paid about .56 for each. They all sold on EBAY for a grand total of $147. Can't beat that cost on investment!!!

I understood that the M-107 was one of Italleri's better kits.

but with German tracks. Italeri has released the line a few years back as well. I bought and built one of the versions sold by Testors back in the day at the PX. I didn't think it was all that great a kit.
