    Hi guys!
    A quick question for those who have this kit: are the exhausts 'hollow' or are they 'solid'. I'm trying to find out before I buy the kit if I need aftermarket exhausts on this one! I know eduard's newly released 1:48 Bf109E-1 has hollow exhausts,but I'm wondering if their 1:48 E-4 has the same Thanks!

    Don't know for sure but it's likely they used the same molds. Take a gander at their website as they usually have pictures of the sprues.

    Thanks! Yeah I had a look but the photo is of the entire kit laid out on a table, so I can't see the small details. I also downloaded the kit plans, but as those are drawings I can't tell either! Oh we, I took the leap and ordered 2 of their Bf109E-4 kits in 1:48- so I'll be able to tell for myself soon enough! It should be quite a challenging build-lots and lots of very detailed bits including a very very impressive engine and guns,so I think I'm in for an interesting time with these!

    PS: I just saw the Eduard site says the E-1 (released in February this year, IIRC) has hollow guns and exhausts, so if you're right and they used the same mould, thats great!

    Stand to reason these common parts would be the same.
