I imagine this is a reboxing of their 1/48th kit.

Yep and it´s a poor one to. Did there first one and was not happy at all


Parts fitting loosley and alot of filler needed to get it nice, zink mark on the outsides of the fuselage.



For the moment I´m trying to have the passangerkit finished off, and must say that this is not my kind of music anymore. I will just wait and see, then I´ll press the order button if I´m done in my garden. Hopefully other builders have another way off thinking about this one.

I have the DH-4. I have been putting off building it based on your review, plus I am building in 1/32nd at the present. I can wait for the WNW "9ACK".
I do like Roden's 1/32nd stuff that I have build and look forward to more.
Too bad they don't include some of the sunburst decals for that neat scheme.

One interesting feature is that in the instructions.they do provide a template for the sunburst motif.
