Product Description

Tamiya does it again! An all-new tooling that is guaranteed to push its precursors down to the bottom of the "to build" stack. Lots of detail, plus ease of assembly and some innovative features make this a winner. Without a doubt, one of the most innovative features is the engine pod. Metal posts pass through a wingspar (which guarantees proper dihedral) to jut out of the fuselage top. Parts are provided to build one "buttoned up" engine pod as well as one "open" engine pod, plus a complete engine and stand. Polycaps on the assemblies slide onto the metal posts to allow you to install, uninstall and reinstall either engine pod and the engine at any time. No need to lock yourself into one "look" or the other during the build, or even after you are done for that matter! A separate engine stand is also included, so the engine can be displayed alongside the aircraft if desired (the engine is removable and can be installed on the plane at any time). Markings are for four aircraft: Oberst Herbert Ihlefeld's "White 23" of JG1 (he was the commander of JG1); Oberleutnant Emil Demuth's "Yellow 11" of 3/JG1; Leutnant Rudolf Schmitt's "White 1" of 1/JG1; Leutnant Gerhard Hanf's "Red 1" of 2/JG1.
