Good review, but some additional points. The box art shows two aerials coming from the cockpit mast, when in fact it should only be one, to the starboard fin, on the 'D'. Also, it seems that there is no decal sheet with stencils, which is surprising for a kit of this size. Finally, I was also surprised at the omission of the W. Nr. 3148, for M8+SL, on the decal sheet as it was clearly identified on the 'C', 'D' &'E' book from Fernando Estanislau and myself.
Hope the foregoing helps those who purchase the kit.

The sooner they do a G-4 the sooner they'll sell a boatload of kits.

They have the wing tank supports included, though they don't include the wing tanks themselves, so I suspect a G-4 is coming at some point. Eduard's G-4 issue should help push interest in the plane to new heights.

The lack of stencils and swastikas on the 110 kits is a real mark against what would otherwise be a perfect OOB build. Fortunately EagleCals has a lovely set of three sheets to choose from.
