I expect people are holding onto their negatives because they haven't got a scanner :lol: :lol:. But my scanner is alive and well especially at weekends ;).

that's good news Andy! the bad news for me is that I'm going to stick with an unassembled DJH kit for ever...

edit: now that I have seen the price I think I'm going to start building the one I already got :D

I second you BarbaPanagos...
... but was it right that the recommended price is 399 euros :shock: for a ready to run plastic model? Customers must be in short supply for them also :lol:

we'll have to look at their 2014 new releases catalog, I hope this is not Roco's new economic policy...
normally a model like this goes at around 200 E, 280 E with sound, and one could get it sooner or later with a 20-25% discount...
unless it is made by ESU
