Another great review, Darren. I really like what ROG is doing. This looks like a very good kit to look for.

Darren, another excellent review. I really like the prolog to these reviews, as I know very little about German/Axis WW11 aircraft. What I'm still having issues with is that there are no swastikas, as it's a German produced product. Just makes no rational sense. They're allowed to make replicas of German WW11 aircraft, yet they're not allowed to include the accurate historical markings. I can see if this is meant to be a toy, but it's not.

I Believe it is a legal issue in Germany and so thats life. These synbols are available from other sources and with what I consider a low purchase cost of the model are an affordable after market addition.

Joel, it's against the law to sell swastikas in Germany. There are various workarounds, but it's easy enough to get replacement decals or masks. Good review, Darren. RoG kits are very good value for money, and there are ample AM sets on the market already for those who want to super-detail this kit.
