Actually, I looked at two. The first one that came into the hobby
shop had a broken upper wing. I mentioned this to the shop, and they
sent it back. Then the next one comes, and it had too many air
bubbles. Maybe he molds a lot on Firday's?

Except for the air bubbles (!) I thought the kit was molded well.
However, since it appears that the Eduard kit is imminent, I'll wait
for that one.

Now to buy the Ragwings 1/72nd Fokker D.VI...
