WOW, THAT's HUGE! I have ordered the Gotha G.I and NOT YET confessed to my loving wife... Seems like as the box is so huge, I can't let it „slip“ into our house, but have to tell her in advance...

Hehe...of course!  It's the same length and width as the Felixstowe's and about 1/2 the height.   :)

Indeed.  It would be like trying to slip an elephant into the house.   ;D

I have never seen Gotha G.IV box live, can anyone tell me how does it compare to AEG G.IV? This would let me know the size of G.I better.

The G.IV box is the same as the AEG; the G.I box is the same as the ‘Dualist’ boxes.

Thanks, Justin. Now only fingers crossed for the mail service, my Gotha must be very close :)

   Today at our local IPMS Meeting I had the pleasure of closely examining the G.1 Kit and the box it came in. Two immediate thoughts to pass on; a lot of very impressive plastic in the box and NO, you ain't gonna sneak that box past the "Missus", RH!! ::) :-\
Cheers,
