Focke Wulf Fw 190A. 1/24 Airfix
In general outline, it isn't too bad, though the mid fuselage around the cockpit area is made over-wide, possibly to aaccomodate a removeable pilot...

Tamiya He162 1/48th Preview
This kit was a pre-production test shot – just a bag of sprues with no part number tabs, locating pins, instructions or decals. Even in this state, it was pretty obvious that this little guy was going to knock the older Trimaster/Dragon kit of the He162 off its perch. All up, this was a fun project and I’ll quite happily build a “production” kit when it becomes available here in New Zealand. I would rate it as the best kit of the He162 in any scale – highly recommended. A special thanks to Modelcrafts & Hobbies and Trevor Bringans Ltd for making this sample available to me to build.

Siemens Schuckert D-III/IV. Toko. 1/72
It is wonderful to see such a well-engineered model of a WW I fighter, and this reviewer hopes that future WW1 kits are soon forthcoming from Toko. Highly recommended. Injection-molded plastic, 36 pieces, decals.

Junkers D.1. Roden kit 041. 1/72nd
The kit is well recommended for modelers who enjoy unique subjects. I am a big fan of Roden models and have several in my collection. The company produces accurate and detailed kits of interesting subjects. These kits are, however, not of the “add glue and shake” variety. They all seem to have some tricky areas. The D.1 is no exception.

Fokker E.IV Eindecker. Eduard ProfiPack kit 7025. 1/72nd
I can recommend this kit without reservation. It is as close to an “add glue and shake” kit as you can find for a WW I subject.

Albatros D.III. Roden Kit 022. 1/72nd
This kit is a recent release from Roden. It is noted that a number of extra parts are included in the kit. Roden use many of the same sprues to build other versions of the Oeffag D.II and D.III. The kit is cleanly molded and includes markings for five aircraft.

Me-163B Komet. Academy. 1/72nd
I was pleased with the final result. This model captures the look of the Komet and the dainty Scheuchschlepper allows a good presentation without detracting from the model. Recommended.
