110-g's Schnaufer. One Revell One Eduard
Having made a complete mess of my first 1/48 Eduard 110G-4 I tracked down a Revell version on E Bay. This was a much easier build BUT as everyone knows the nacelles and spinners are wrong. You can see I've shaped them myself and put on the Edurad spinners from the trashed kit. Now long story short I ended up with various Eduard kit parts, overtrees etc. Also the 110G is getting scarce. The Revell one even more so.
So I built another Eduard one. Compare and contrast! None are particularly pleasing. The modified nacelles on the Revell are clear. Theres a seam line I see on the Eduard nacelle. I haven't weathered them at all yet and exhaust smoke needs to be added at least.
Bottom line is the Revell kit was a much easier build even if scales are a bit out. Eduard's kit is faithful but IMPOSSIBLY FIDDLY! The undercarriage was especially trying. The stags horn radar antenna on the Eduard were 100 x more work than the Revell, although again the Revell is probably over scale.
I notice the Shrage Musik (SP?) exits the canopy in a slightly different place on each.
