Newly arrived and a nice little model though it does look a little strange in Luftwaffe markings. Only slight quibble is that the cross on the port side top wing is slightly further in than the one on the other side.

This is a quite nice example. Wish they made it in 1.48 . Nice rigging and that has to be a real PIA for a 1.72 aircraft.

It is a very nice little model, but I think Corgi had some QC problems with it. I purchased mine from a UK dealer and it arrived with slack and broken rigging. I ended-up pulling the top wing apart and adjusting the rigging best I could. It looks better, but is still far from perfect.
