    The kit was pretty straight forward and a fun build. I need to make some mass balancers or find some ,the kits were missing them. The intention was to replace the 109 with these but they came up short in performance (only 30 mph faster than a Gustav)and lack of stability killed the project in '43. There were several different tail sections tried to improve stability, I could find pics only 3 and one looks really close to a 262 . Might have to get another kit and bash a 262 tail on! Hope you enjoy the pics cheers Trey

    Great job Trey. I've shied away from that brand as I'd they were a tricky build.

    Thanks Fellas really kind of all of you! Aaron honestly I've only recently discovered it myself along with a few other odd '09's such as the 509 mid engine and even a proposed 'Zwilling' set up . Geo the kits are'nt too hateful but do lack locator pins but I did'nt find this a big deal. The fit was okay and required just a small amount of filler at the wing to fuse joint.
    Heres the real deal

    This one looks a bit rough ,wonder if any of the airframes survive today?

    Nice work. A far cry from my old Huma kit in 1/72.
