Just finished my 1/72 Hellcat. It's an Eduard weekend edition. It's the first Eduard kit I have built. There is some pe parts ( well, the bits I could see...). Went together really well. I enjoyed building it, hope you enjoy looking at it.

Couldn't agree more with Ian, Will there be a base for this one?

Nice one Paul. Are you a convert to Eduard ? I've built a few and find them great little kits.

Not sure yet. Got another in the stash. Very pleased with how that one went.

That one was. I thought it was well moulded and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Decals also very good.

Paul,
some of the early Eduard kits are more in the style of a short-run model, but the later ones are very good, whether you choose the 'Weekend' versions, or the 'Profipack'.
One really good thing about Eduard, is you can download the instructions for all their models from their website & see what you are getting into, & what paints you will need!

Thanks for that. The hellcat was a weekend edition. Don't know if that means a weekend to build it, it took me s bit longer than that.
