We've waited a long time for Eduard's Avia B.534 - and at times it looked like it had fallen by the wayside - but it's here and the wait has been definitely worthwhile!

Looks quite an interesting little kit. The box art is gorgeous.
Nice review Rowan.

Hi Rowan!

Very nice review of what seems to be a great kit!

I always thought that to build this plane one day it would have been necessary to buy a vacuform or resin kit... and now we have a "State of the Art" injected one. It's about time I build those resin kits in my stash...

Hi Steffen

Don't worry - it's on the workbench.

The Heinkel finished?... don't be silly!

All the best

Aaah, this is a kit that could push me into 1/48... I have always liked the looks of it and I once had a 1/48 kit of this that I gave away to a friend.It was an MPM vacform with all the minor parts supplied in a brown injection plastic. I also have the 1/72 KP kit somewhere in the stash.

Nice review and good to see it out on the market finally!

Regards

Magnus
