The Eduard exterior P/E detail set 72 463 was used on this model. This made a big difference, especially the radar antenna!

These aircraft were mainly employed in the anti-shipping role.

A beautiful kit with very little extra detail added.

  1. Great modelling Chris, as usual! Especially the Condor is very impressive. Did it take much longer (compared to standard subjects, let’s say Bf 109) to finish?

    • Hi Tomasz,
      Thanks for your kind words, and no it took not much longer to build than other regular kits even though it is pretty big! Revell kits have always been very straightforward to build, with a nice level of detail straight out of the box. The Eduard set certainly added to the build time but was worth that little bit of extra effort.

      Cheers,
      Chris.

    • Hi Bill! Yeah, it was a revolutionary design and was one of the, if not the, fastest piston engined aircraft of WW2. Luckily for us it never reached operational service though. Also it was one of the first aircraft to be fitted with an ejection seat.
