    Not sure what a kit build is going to involve? Want to look at the kit before you buy it? And the instructions?
    Then check out this site:

    Model Making, Plastic Models, Scale Models, Model shop - www.model-making.eu

    Every kit that they have for sale has a full layout of pictures showing the part sprues, the decals and a full set of instructions. Regardless of whether you buy from them or not, it's a great way to preview your kits. :)

    What a wonderful site! I can preview the models so I can order the paints at the same time. Brilliant stuff, thank you!

    Theres also this website I found where you can just preview the directions just in case you lose them or something. I found it while searching the internet for revell's ju 290.
    Manual: Junkers Ju 290 A-5 "Seeadler"

    Great site. I bought a US Airship for the Heavies GB and discovered it had around 8 parts. This site would have came in handy!
