    Should be good Jerry - have a look at my comparison review with this kit and the old Matchbox kit, which shows how many areas need attention. Also, IIRC, the kit's instruction sheet is partly incorrect for the decal placement on Bertram's aircraft.
    Also, could you please edit the data block in the title post, to include the scale, for judging purposes later. Thanks.

    Jerry, I can send the review in a PDF if you can PM me an e-mail address. It might be worth it, as there is a lot to do to get it looking like the 'Emil' !
    The origins of the kit go back to 'Frog', in the late 1960s, and there are many areas which are just 'wrong'. That said, it doesn't look too bad OOB.

    I've e-mailed the info Jerry, and checked the Hasegawa instruction sheet for the decal placement. As I thought, it's incorrect. The swastika should be in the 'old' position, partly on the fin, part on the rudder, with the rudder hinge line bisecting it. If you're stuck, let me know and 'I'll post a pic of it on his aircraft.
