thanks for the news. I personally thinks that the big item is not the kit, but the laser cut paper clamps. these are probably like the ones in this article https://armorama.kitmaker.net/forums/148549#1241906 and not just your ordinary paper. I hope that this addition to the tasca kit (first time this is added to a kit, I think?) would mean that we will see more of this materiel used in the hobby - and more AM sets or manufacturers will be added.
