    Hi All
    Here is my next build. This is a new tooling brought out late last year and I picked this one up from Wonderland Models for under £20.
    As it says on the box you are able to build two versions and they supply engine cowlings,canopies, treaded and smooth tyres and high and low tails. There is also options for different ejector shoots for the armament. The decal sheet looks to be in good registration although the black areas seem a little mottled and not solid unfortunately this is not visible in the photo. I will have to wait and see if this shows up once applied fingers crossed it doesn't.
    As you can see from the spru shots there is some very fine detail down to the point that they supply the fuel line as a clear part. One thing Revell has finally picked up on and what people have moaned about for a long time is the lack of RLM numbers well here they are for the first time
    Not sure when I will be able to start on this one as my work station has had a revamp and change of location. So watch this space

    Well at last I've made a start and predictably with the office. This comes with over 15 parts and also that fuel line in clear plastic. No problems with construction all very straight forward. I've used the decal for the instrument panel as there is no dial detail within each dial so the decal sits perfectly flat. The seat belts are HGWs a little fiddly but worth it and at £6.20 for two sets plus PE parts you get a lot for your money. Toe straps are made from foil.

    Vaughan,

    Have you chosen your options yet? Plenty of parts to choose from!
