Does anyone know if the Trumpeter 'Op Telic' kit comes with the parts to make the 'standard' version as well (ie the side skirts, exhaust etc)? I want to make a European version but have got a chance at a good offer on e-bay.

Herehttp://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10035570 you will have pictures of the sprues.
They are not great but you can notice the wavvy shape of the original side skirts in one picture.

The Op Telic kit has the original bazooka plates but it also has 2 large holes in each side of the front turret armour for the white IFF Plates, and they would be difficult to fill

MJ having read that just had to go and look at the 2 I am building and no holes, simply the flat plate with small indentation for the MBSGD, is/was yours a early/late version kit?

Hi Bob

I only bought it in the past year but it looked like an older tooling...
