Accessory Review
This is quite an extensive conversion set that is also about correcting the old Revell G.24 kit as well. The resin parts make up the entire fuselage because only the upper decking and tailplanes from the Revell kit are used. The wings also come from the Revell kit, but the engines and undercarriage are all new resin parts; the latter being cast in the very strong (black) resin. The canopy is supplied as vac-formed clear plastic and you get two, just in case you mess the first one up.
The decal sheet offers one option: 
U5+ZA operated by the Luftwaffe in Greece in 1940. The decal sheet include the codes, crosses and swastikas only.

The Revell kit is good, albeit hard to find currently, so even with all those corrugations this new conversion is very welcome. The resin parts are well moulded with a little flash but no air bubbles and the decals are well printed with perfect colour and registration.
As yet there is no UK importer or stockist of the excellent Master-X range, so contact them directly (email: master.x2@centrum.cz ) about obtaining this product.
