    Well,
    Hasegawa's 1/32 D-9 is only 32 quid at Hannants, 52 later, thinking of picking one up!
    But, when it comes to the '109's, F's, G's and possibly the K, what to pick, Hasegawa or Trumpeter?

    Probably Hasegawa. I'm not saying the Trump kits are bad, but almost every review, or build report I've seen about most of their kits, seem to indicate inaccuracies somewhere. The 32nd scale P51B and 48th scale C47 come to mind, but then their Bf109s might be OK. Wayne might be the one to ask here methinks old chap.

    Right, my dear fellow, Hasegawa it is then! Cheers!
    Keeping an eye on a Hasegawa 1/32 K-4 on ebay, re-issue by Revell, and maybe, just maybe snap up a G-6 (for Heinrich Bartels) if cheap enough.
    Might just try this 1/32 bug... :lol:
