    It is a re-release A-8 with new decals, only Blue 13 is the same as in the original release....got a couple of Eduards 190's and yet to start one!
    They do look real nice in the box though!

    and what do you think about the quality of Eduard´s products compared to their competitors?
    Amazing, how such a small Czech company can be successful in such a business...but I think the idea of specific decals and conversion kits made their name known...

    I haven't built an Eduard kit yet, but everything I've seen of theirs, or read about, especially their series of FW190 kits, looks fantastic. I know their accessories are very well known and respected. Great work from a small company!

    The kit looks very nice though some problems with fitting the fuselage-wing can appear.I have the weekend edition for the A-8 and A-5 version.

    My basic interest is in 1/72 scale but also because I have too many models in progress and my workbench is of too small room.:lol:
