The old ESCI kit has been around for years now and it needed a bit of a revamp, well AMtech  have come up with the answer. You now get a new improved cockpit set and unspatted legs

resin parts

front view

The instruction booklet gives full detailed paiting instructions  and the assembly sequencies are straight forward and clear, you even get a picture of the areas you must file or sand away to release the resin parts.

rear view

The decal sheet provides for five aircraft with differing colour schemes including a Spanish machine and  four colour camouflage plane from 1937 pre war era


The kit assembles fairly easily with good mating joins, my only problem was fitting the upper wing to the struts, it needed a little pursuasion but not a real problem

I enjoyed this one and it filled a gap in my Luftwaffe collection.
