Interesting. I wonder how big the model is... the 1/35 version Dragon was planning was a bit too big for my taste.

If the 310*190*130 are the actual dimensions, that works out to 12-7/32"x7-7/16"x5-7/64" (give or take a little). It's a decent sized model, and it looks nice.

Interesting, that's certainly a more manageable size than the mammoth Dragon kit.
