"Cool little kit. No issues."
I was commissioned to build this kit for a gentleman who sent it to me. I typically am more fond of jets and other modern subjects, however, I figured one should go together just like the other. This being my first WWII subject or earlier, I was excited to test my hand at it. My first sense of amazement was how few parts are required to bring these little kits together. To me, that's a win/win situation considering that you can see progress come together rather quickly, and you're not spending months detailing advanced wheel, weapons, or avionics bays. This kit in particular had very little, if any fit issues, and I was able to make a rather good looking kit out of it within about ten days of work. The only thing that you may suffer from is lack of reference material, since this aircraft was a prototype that never saw the light of day. However, this in my opinion, is a good thing because it gives the artist a chance to really do his own thing without all the 'rivet counters' in the world trying to criticize the final outcome. All in all, I would recommend this kit to someone who's looking for something a little different besides a P-51 or Spitfire to add to their collection. Highly recommended

"Excelent kit of ME-509"
This is a very pleasing kit for the serious WWII model builder. The subject and fit is very good. I highly recommend this kit for anyone.


Due to many small parts that could become a choking hazard, pleas keep away from children 3 years of age and younger.
