Rowan! Thank you very much for this review! I for one can't have enough 109s and I will definitely be ingestion in this kit. It looks very complete and is obviously a quality offering. Talke care and thanks again.

How funny, my iPads spell checker can be a pain! I meant to say I was investing not ingestion. Hopefully folks won't too gleefully correct me :-).

Cheers Jim

LOL! I'll definitely be investing in some more of these beauties too! Having test-fitted the basic parts for the purposes of the review, I'll try to conjure up some time from somewhere to make this my first build in the better part of a year. It's about time to see if I can remember how to build something...

All the best

Hi Rowan,

..hope all is well with you! Thanks for the great review and very nice pics. This looks like a must have kit although I still haven't built the F-2 yet - I did manage to finish the 1/72 Zvezda Friedrich recently. The lack of decal options is rather disappointing I must say, especially as Ostermann's aircraft will be a little tricky to paint. Luftwaffe in Focus did provide some nice reference for this machine though
