    Just finished this kit up and it was a very fun ,quick build.Really a nice break after the Do217N conversion The kit is reall decent and includes a resin cockpit and unspatted main gear option. From what I've found out this is a rebox of the old esci kit. The research I was able to find indicated the aircraft itself won against the Fiesler Fi 98 entry for a dive bomber to fill in until the Ju87 was ready and wound up serving in front line duty on the eastern front. The Hs 123 did so well in close ground support it remained in service on the Ostfront until there were simply none left. I modelled this after one in 4./SchG 2
