My pleasure, Tim. These are really very nice. But the engine upgrade is superfluous unless you're going to have the bonnet open or off entirely for a "repair" dio. I mean, the louvered side panels on the bonnet are lovely, but a bit pricey if you're leaving the whole thing closed.

I think that this Griffon aftermarket correct a little mistake made by Dragon; the Dragonīs kit have the bevelled radiator mask corresponding to Borgward but Dragon put the Krauss Maffei logo on it.
The bonus of this set is that it have both logos, Krauss Maffei and Borgward.
If you have two Dragon kit, you can replace one radiator by the Griffon correct one and in the other kit you must sanding the Krauss Maffei logo and glue the PE Borward logo provided by Griffon.
