Here's a review of Eduard's much eagerly awaited 1:48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110 G-4 night fighter. Once again, a kit made by the prolific Czech Manufacturer meets all the expectations.

Very nice Review Jean-Luc!

I like the new fuselages .. the "border" will help to avoid a lot of grinding and a good fit of the wing OOB (probably )

I am a bit disappointed of the markings sheet .. there are a bunch of known KC holder markings but just Johnen who was not bright enough to find the own airfield ... just kidding but no Schnauffer, Lent, Becker, Drewes ... is pretty poor, but it is maybe just me because I build "pilots". guess I have to wait for the Royal Class .. have the same problem with the G-2 else i would have started it immediately.

cheers

Hi Jean-Luc

Very nice! And, of course, it reminds me that I've got the 'G-2 waiting for me to get on with, once I get down to the Isle of Wight.

All the best

Nice review, every time I see a review for these I fancy building one. Its once the build logs start filtering through that I keep my wallet firmly in my pocket.

I would be interested to know whether Eduard have resolved some of the fit issues with the earlier releases as I believe they alluded to in one of their newsletters earlier in the year.

Hi Gary

Well, I made a basic start on the kit and found a few fit issues with the new nacelles, pretty much along the same lines as the earlier kits in the series.

All the best

Excellent review. Perhaps I'll spring for this kit, as I've gotten bogged down in the conversions of the Revell of Germany kits in 1/32nd. It might help me re-energize my enthusiasm for this great airframe.
