Me-108B Taifun

1/48th scale kit by Eduard



What a kit! Other than being a plane I've seen in the Great Escape movie (as well as other "B" movies when used as a '109 substitute) this real aircraft has no interest to me. That is a shame, and I hope for Eduard's sake, I'm not in the majority because this is truly a beautiful kit that calls out to be built. If you've seen the recent Eduard offerings (especially the P-400/P-39 series) you'll know what I mean. This kit continues that fine tradition of quality. This is as good a kit (in the box) as any I've seen, and that is as high praise as I can give a kit before building it. Look at how the kit is presented in the box. Included in a very sturdy box first is a canopy mask set (I hope this is a now-standard Eduard offering), and three recloseable bags filled with three colored tan sprues of parts, and one clear spru. A nice decal sheet and both kit and mask placement instructions round out the contents.

If the subject at all tickles your "interest" bone, run, don't walk to get this kit. Well, actually you can stay sitting where you are, and order one from Roll Models.

I'm sorry, but since the review has been published that product appears to have gone out of production.
