Not THAT kit!

Luiz hope you're aware of the issues with assembly on this. I've tried it twice and gave up in frustration. Wait..my nemeses is the -8 kit. Are they based on the same kit, anyone?
I told you photobucket sucks...

I would say a big Yes!

Like the Ed D12 I am on, Luis, dry fit everything before you glue, check and re check, these are all tricky kits, lots of patience required.

Take your time and good luck, will be watching, it doesn't hurt to ask some advise from those talented souls here that have completed one of these. :drinks

Luiz,
Great choice for a modeling subject but the Eduard kit can be troublesome to say the least.

When the Eduard kit was released a few years back I was getting some good feedback as to what it was like to build this kit from different modelers on a couple other modeling sites and was surprised at the reactions, some said it was a good kit while others binned it out of frustration. What really got my attention was one of the guys that threw his Eduard Fw 190A kit away was a very experienced modeler and had built many more Fw 190's than I ever have, I asked him why he binned the kit and he said not many things went together as they should and he decided to cut his losses and move on to a different kit. After hearing of the mixed reaction on building the Eduard short nosed Focke-Wulfs I decided to pass on buying any of them but did buy a couple Eduard long nose Fw 190's after reading they were a lot easier to assemble.

Good luck with yours and I will be watching with interest. :good
