"Terrible low quality model"
hillelbenchimol (Israel)
There are no numbers identifying the parts with lots of similar parts ,lots of extra parts, very poor indication on assembly,too many minute parts to the engine which in the end you have no option of showing, like for example by leaving a hatchet open,what a waste of time in assembling and painting engine.The good thing were the figures, very good sculpting and detail.Painting directions all over the place you have to go back and forth to 3 different pages.I would not recommend this model to anyone.

"Great Product"
Randy (Ohio, USA)
This model goes together well. The parts fit nicely. The detail is very good. I intend to make this the centerpiece of a diorama.

"Great Figures, Challenging Airplane Build"
Yes to several other review comments. The ground figures are nicely cast and very desirable, and they were a main reason for getting this kit. And yes, the nose assembly is hopeless. You need to plan on leaving the engine out. After all, it deserves to be seen. Tonight I flanged all the nacelle parts with sheet stock and made a workable Me-109F, the variant most admired by 109 fanciers because of its late model nose and wingtips, and the absence of the big gun breech blisters on Gustav and later 109s. I'll be mounting the propeller on a fabricated shaft, set in some more sheet stock inside the nose fairing. The shape is everything it should be, and the rest of the airframe and the interior were enjoyable. This won't go down as my permanent collection Me-109F, but it looks like it'll now finish into a passable model.

"Bad Fitting Issues"
I got this model mainly because it came with ground crew and was fairly priced. However, the instructions are not very clear, especially on the engine assembly, and one slight wrong fitting will make the engine not fit, and there were gaps in the fuselage and because of the engine not fitting properly, the whole nose cowling did not fit at all onto the model. I do not recommend this kit for inexperienced modelers, as the instructions will not help you when assembling the engine and many other components. I expected much better quality.
