Hi Rowan,

Very nice review!

I too think it is a great kit despite it's "identity crisis"...
I have ordered the Mushroom book and I'm looking forward to build a Hs126 in desert sheme...

Jean-Luc, me too! I built the Matchbox 126 in desert scheme almost 30 years ago. Would like to relive it in a modern, 1/48 kit.

Hi again

Hopefully ICM will include a tropical oil cooler and markings in their Hs 126B-1 release. What's got me really excited is, on the basis of this kit, just how good their forthcoming Fw 189 could be!

All the best

Rowan
