This is the Eduard 1/32 kit of the E1, the first in their E-series. I had it for ages before I finally got round to the build.
I’ve modelled it as Ulrich Steinhilper’s machine at Calais in 1940 (see record photograph). The markings were unusual in that the aircraft retained partly the two-tone splinter camo topside, from the campaigns in Poland and France, but with a light blue-with-mottling on the fuselage sides, reflecting the changing nature of the war with England and actions over the North Sea.
