Default Tamiya 1/48 F-16C to D Conversion

Hi Everyone,
Have any of you ordered any resin from Wingman Models? They have posted a conversion set for any Tamiya F-16C to take it to a D Model. It's spendy if my Euro to dollar conversion is correct......45.00 dollars with shipping.
Here is the link....

I can only order it from a retailer called Shop of Phantoms, but I've never dealt with them, so I would like to get some feedback for any of you that have had dealings with them or the resin conversion set from Wingman Models.
Thanks

Really? $35? Too rich for my blood.

I'd rather get a Hase B/D and swipe the hump and canopy to place on the Tamiya. And then I've got the Hase kit to play with or trade. A resin spine to cover the hole from the hump and you've got a perfectly usable kit.

I ordered one yesterday along with Jake's USAFE Vipers sheet. Looking forward to seeing the resin in person.

Am waiting for the non HUD repeater version for Block 25's. Or would like to know if I can just saw the HUD repeater off without to much damage to the pedestal piece.

I just ordered one too! So we'll see if it's worth the 35.00 bucks!
Thanks everyone!
