I agree but..

I feel your pain with Trumpeter and I too replace their weapons but I replaced them out of choice not because they were not provided. Very Fire just designated how many more dollars to be subtracted from your wallet for lack of provision?
I got the kit and considering the horrible offerings of other kits that have horrible renditions of guns with shields (Trumpeter I'm looking at you), I will most likely use aftermarket guns anyway.
I've got the kit and in my opinion it is light years ahead of the old Tamiya version.
Are we honestly whinging that a 1/700 kit doesn't have injection moulded blobs for splinter shields on Oerlikons and vowing never to use that manufacturer again?
Imagine my surprise that Very Fire did not include splinter shields for the 40mm quads or the 20mm guns. I guess if you want that simple accuracy you have to buy the $100 kit for the photo-etch shields as they won’t do it in mold injected. They should state that. Last time Very Fire purchase. Do not like manipulative practices such as this.
Thank God for aftermarket parts from 3D Model Parts and Blue Ridge.
