Following their benchmark Bf 109F kits, it's been a long wait for Zvezda's eagerly anticipated Gustav, but it''s finally available - and it's a beauty.

thanks Rowan - I didn't know Meng were doing one as well. The decal 'issue' is not likely to be a concern given the number of sheets that most 'Experten' have in their stashes. In terms of value-for-money this one looks unbeatable!

Hi Neil

Are they? I didn't know that either. If it's true, they'll be stepping into a crowded market and be hard pushed to beat Zvezda's kit.

All the best

This sure makes my decision hard to choose now . I was planning on getting Eduards re-tooled G-6 , but this one is a game changer .....what to do ...get both !

Pretty sure the Zvezda is more accurate than Eduard in nose/canopy cross section proportions, right around the windscreen.
