When I saw this review, I ordered the set. It is a beautiful set that fits well in my Supermodel (Now Italeri) Do 24.

"In case of this product I cannot offer many valuable final comments, as I do not have Italeri kit and I don't know almost anything about Dornier airplanes. I have not seen Italeri plastic model parts, so I don't know how much improvement resin parts offer"

So... where's the "review" in this review?

All I can see is that the majority of KitMaker reviews are just a showcase excuse, and no more than that. Anyway, in any case, I prefer the sincerity of this reviewer over the directly unfounded or foolish opinions that I've read in some other so-called-reviews at Aeroscale.

Where did you order it from. I went to the Modelmex link in the review and I searched by manufacture and nothing from that company shows up. Also went the their website which sent me to a search engine

Can this be confirmed ?

Don't know about the air stuff, but I know that Blackdog bought some of their 1/72 Armor masters.


Kind regards, Sven.

Robbie, great link, thanks! I spotted the Do 24 set on page 2.

Here is news from 2010 that they quit taking orders:

I hope Goffy returns as I am very impressed with the sets of 1/72 infantry and armor equipment I bought. Their workshop sets look great and I'm tempted to obtain the 1/700 factories.

Hi all

Note: this review was seemingly published originally in September 2004. Quite how it's appeared as "New" almost 10 years later is a mystery I'll try to find a reason for...

All the best
