Here's a First Look at Eduard's impressive new 1/32 scale Bf 109E before it heads straight for the workbench this weekend!

Thanks for the review, not sure yet but maybe i will break my non 1/32 scale stance just for this one.

There was also a Matchbox 1/32 109E as well remember, so actually the Hasegawa kit wasn't quite the only game in town before- but admittedly a lot harder to get than the Hasegawa one.

Hi Andrew

I'd completely forgotten the Matchbox kit (I built the Spit at the time, but didn't get the '109)! Thanks for the reminder - I'll update the text.

All the best

Hi Rowan,

Thanks for the review - you really should link it to your blog, and visa versa.

I'm really looking forward to following your blog on this one - the 109 is one of my fav wingy things

Of course this also means you have to finish the blog!

Yeah, what was that New Years Resolution? Don't Buy more kits than I build. Let see... I have finished 3, and haven't bought any. I can get one

Thanks Rowan.

Nice one Carl!

Eduard have just sent through a sample of their photo-etch upgrade set for the kit, so I'll be adding that to the mix for my build where I can (in a few places, I've already got too far) as soon as I've reviewed it this weekend. Even at first glance, it answers a couple of the questions raised by the standard kit and adds plenty of detail overall. (See... I knew being prevented from making real progress on the kit by work would actually prove handy in the long run! )

All the best

Rowan
