For a kit that the only on-line reference I could find described it as unbuildable, this was a real joy to build.  I can only assume they were talking about a different kit.  True, it is a very simple and basic mold, but the surface detail is very nice, with fine, and as far as I can tell, accurate panel lines and very fine raised rivet details. 

Fit was great, and there was practically no flash to clean up. The only real problem I had was when I melted the rudder off with a thermo-nuclear reaction between superglue and kicker, but that was resolved with a replacement kit donating another rudder. 

High point would have to be my first attempt at a Luftwaffe mottled camo scheme.  I’m very happy with the way it turned out.  Low points would be the undercarriage.  It isn’t quite right to my eyes.  Also the exhausts are too proud, but I can live with that.

A smashing little kit, and I would recommend it.

Very, very nice job [thumb]

A real silk purse from an alleged sows ear, you have done a great job with the mottling.

Geoff.

Thanks, Geoff, I really don't know why it had a bad rep, or at least as far as the one reference I can find for it, it's really quite a nice kit, and went together surprisingly well for an old kit.
