I found this little jewel in a hobby shop in New York last month. I could not resist buying it for US$17,00 even with the box in so bad shape like you can see on the picture above. The model is mostly made of photo-etched metal parts, with a small sprue with 8 parts. I have to say that there is no other way to make this model except by making it out of photo-etched parts. The details are really small but should look very nice once assembled. Markings consist of a set of German national insignia. The suggested painting scheme is overall RLM02, but i found that most references indicate it should be painted in RLM65.
