Althought it's been out a while now I've only just got mine, it's a lovely model but be warned it's fragile in a few areas. Most of the pivot points use a steel pin except for the arc movement of the wing end blade, this is a plastic part and very vunerable . I've found out the hard way! I chose the unlettered modern version, it's very orange but a good weathering challenge. I also noticed that once out of the box the wings don't sit as close to the sides as they should, they spring out slightly due I assume to the slightly over scale rams . Paperwork with the model is a reprint of the original kit instructions. At nearly £90 it's not cheap but we won't be buying multiples of it unlike other models. It also doesn't look easy to alter the cab /front blade to update it further althought the modern lights fittings and orange livery certainly add a modernish look. I'll post piccies as soon as I finish the weathering and an idea to get the wings in a more normal running position .

I also bought one of these, yes it was expensive for what it is.

 

yes it is very orange, this is it straight out of the box.

Squeaky, is that two different main plough blades?

The first picture shows the top edge as a definite V, where as the third picture shows the top edge as a straight line.
