just wanted to let you know I ordered the 'Lafayette' from Engel, totally different from what I planned initially. The U-19 looks to be a definite technical-no go and the Pat Henry's a great kit but a bit to bulky. The decision to go for the Lafayette is based on the comments I got from all of you, and a lot of positive reviews an messages on the German Modelling Forum.
Thanks again for all you replies, hint and tips.
