    When its released in January, I for one, will buy one.....or two.....or....:oops:

    JANUARY KITS – THE DORA IS COMING!
    And believe me, she is in fine form! The kit has many interesting features, one of which is the rear engine accessories, seen through the bottom when viewed through the landing gear well open roof, as well as in the upper view through the open machine gun hatch – if left open, although this can easily be built in the closed position. I have no doubt that some guys will cry ‘over-engineered’, but after seeing the test shots, I have no reason to believe that this kit doesn’t benefit immensely from this feature. Another area I like is the tail, with five various types of riveting, one among them represented as positive rivets. But I need to leave myself something to write about in next month’s newsletter! Check out the marking schemes. As I said above, a lot of thought and research went into them, and they should satisfy every modeling connoisseur.

    Contents:
    •6 attractive Luftwaffe marking options
    •Early flat and late bulged canopy
    •Color photo-etched details
    •Express mask
    •Machine gun hatch engineered for all know hatch variants
    •Kit provides realistically engineered open landing wheel well roof with engine backside and other inner fuselage equipment inside

    Marking Option:
    •5./JG 301 Bad Langensalza, Germany, Spring 1945 ("White 12", W.Nr. 500408.)
    •Oblt. Hans Dortenmann, 3./JG 26, May 1945 ("Yellow 1", W.Nr. 210003)
    •Stab/JG 4, Frankfurt/Rheim - Main, Germany, April 1945 ("Black <1", W.Nr. 600150)
    •I./EKG(J), Pilsen, Czechoslovakia, May 1945 ("Red 18", W.Nr. 211115")
    •Stab/JG 6, Prague-Rusin, Czechoslovakia, May 1945 ("Black <4", W.Nr. 211164)
    •Oblt. Hans Dortenmann, 14./JG 26, March 1945 ("Black 1", W.Nr. 210003)

    US Retail: $39.95

    This will most certainly be a Birthday present in 2010....already put 'She who must be obeyed' on notice for one!

    Jan, did you notice the first cad image from the 1-2 oclock view, on Eduards site was of the D-11/13? This will follow within a few months of the D-9.:D

    as a matter of fact ................ 8) yes other Doras of II./JG 301 overall in 5-7th staffels, as there were none in 8th staffel except borrowed crates to fill ranks on ops with the staffel A-8/A-9's

    Nice Erich! Actually I have some JG 301 questions for you pertaining to Fritz Yung and Ferdinand Kray but I'll put that in a seperate thread as they were Bf 109 pilots...

    That's superb news! Please give my regards to Herr Yung should you still be in touch, I'm much impressed with his adventures and courage.

    Just seeing how you guys are bubbling over this new FW-190d-9 almost makes me want to start building plastic
    scale. But, no... I'll stick with the balsa-tissue flying models. Sure would like to see pic's of one completed, tho...
