This kit was first mentioned back in 2006 and sprues seen in 2007 on the internet. Coming from the Polish cottage of Techmod it is a great first WWI aviation subject with multiple possibilities for post war subjects. . . Techmod has gone to the heights with their first WWI kit. The other Top Gun manufacturers of this genre will have to play catch up to beat this little bird.

Wow Stephen - That's quite the kit! Have you done any dry fitting to see how well it's put together yet? Looking forward to see how it turns out! I really like the way the countries in the east are filling the void when it comes to kits!

Excellent review Stephen !

I agree with Dave , nice to see a better choice on subjects which the other manufactures seem to avoid .

This looks to be a nice kit in the box. Other than those ejecter pin holes and nubs on the interior!
One of these may find its way to me someday......

Looks like Louis and I are thinking about the same thing!

Part S48153 - Friedrichshafen FF-33E (1/48) Comprehensive interior and outer surface details.

Part S48154 - Friedrichshafen FF-33E wheels type 1 (1/48) Beaching dollies that look like they are simulated wooden wheels.

Part S48155 - Friedrichshafen FF-33E wheels type 2 (1/48) Beaching dollies that require the modeler to add the rubber tires.
