I am working on the info for the Mk4 and Mk3 hull length

Hull length/width (w/o side-skirts)

Mk.1/2 - 7.45m/3.70m
Mk.3- 7.97m/3.70m
Mk.4 - 7.6m/3.72m

Nikos, do these match your findings?

The width of the Mk4 could be 7.20 but I am waiting for authentication.

Still waiting for Mk3 length and width

Hello Nikos and Israel,
Thanks for your info!
So we are waiting on the Mk4's actual length so we can evaluate Meng and Academy Mk4 kits' accuracy.



Hi Nikos,
Any updates on the measurements? Thank you.
