I'm hoping that Friul or Model Kasten (prefer Friul) will come out with a set for this kit. The kit comes with with 14 sprues and one P.E. fret. Sprues Ax2, B, C, D, F, G, H and L (the tracks) are the same as the Type 2 Ka Mi "Late Production" as earlier released by Dragon. The new sprues are J, K, L (not the tracks), Mx2 and R. The Conning towers are part of sprue M that have been seperated and place in the lower hull baggy for packaging so that may be why there are two of them. The P.E. is MA and has the exhaust screen as well as the new P.E. parts and there are a few and lastly there is a length of thread. I've already noticed an error in the instructions, step 3, in that they mention the use of part B18 for a late version but this should not be an option as this is the early version. That is if you plan on using the pontoons as that is what makes this an early vehicle. Late Ka Mi's had the split type front pontoons and that is where you would use B18 as the middle front clamp was no longer needed. Get online to Dragon USA (I am not affiliated at all)and get yours quick before they are sold out. It is a bit expensive though but it is a Cyber Hobby White box kit.
Haven't opened it yet. I did buy 2 as I heard it is limited.
Dragon make a set of separate links but it seems everyone is out of them.
The kit won't float if you use Friul tracks by the way. Just kidding, it might.
