    Fresh off the workbench. This is my first Eduard kit - always heard good things and finally took the plunge. I had some minor issues but mostly due to my own shortcomings. Can't say enough about these great kits! Anyway here is mine. I know it isn't 100% accurate - for example, I don't know that I've ever seen a "Wespen" with the single BK 37 cannon - but I had a lot of fun with it and the end result is very cool. Thanks for looking!

    Capt Vic beat me to it!
    It may not be 100% accurate, but it looks good, and, more importantly, it's given you pleasure, and a sense of achievement.
    So, no criticisms overall - apart from the ailerons (both drooped) which, disregarding any other areas which could only be checked by reference to specific period photos, is a somewhat glaring error. Correct that, and who would argue about the rest?
    Overall, very well done indeed.

    A fine model and I agree with Terry. If you were to go for more accuracy, the cannon would not have been on this G model and the colours would by then have been the standard 74/75/76 scheme. I like what you did with it though.

    Very nice. I especially like the way you did the exhaust trails.

    Thank you. I used the Tamiya Weathering Set with Snow, Soot, and Rust colors. Great little item.
