NITTO FNS465 Krachenvogel

FNS465 Krachenvogel

Comments
Apart from the Hornisse or Gans, this is one of the kits with a LOT of pieces in it. It contains several brass fittings for the launch tubes and lots of wire and spring hoses and is a great model to test your skills on. Extremely rare and never to be released (or so says Nitto). It builds into a nice model and while any Neuspotter could be converted quite easily, you have to first find one to convert. Grab a Krachenvogel whenever you get the chance. Highly recommended. Recent rumours indicate that the moulds aren't damaged but Nitto has no firm plans on releasing it yet. We wait with fingers crossed!
