A while back, when the Eduard E.III kit was released, I remember there being
quite an outcry about some very obvious goofs in the kit, the most striking
of which was supposedly that the wings were too short by one "section" (that
is, one rib too few, and the length in between missing).

Well, in preparing for my 1/72 odyssey, I dusted off my Eduard kit, and laid
it over the Rimell line drawings from the Windsock datafile. Spot on. Dead to
rights. Any other platitude you like. The only other aircraft I've ever had
lie within the lines this well was the new Minicraft Spitfire Mk XIV.

If there are other areas I should be aware of, let me know. I couldn't remember
if the accuracy debate was here or on the newsgroup, but I thought I'd let
you guys know.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
