The shortcoming of the decals is sad, since A and B are the most attractive ones. This is one of the kits I can pay 34 without any doubts. Thank you Rowan for the review

hi Tuomas

I totally agree .. thats why I bought the original releases (each) and also have a nice boxart of both machines I "only" need to finish that darn rigging job and decals on the Berthold a/c .. just pulled it from the stack when I had seen the new Dual combo last month.

Looking forward to the Dual Combo Dual Build, Terri and Mark! ... or should that be Duel build

all the best

Well, Terri

my hair is quite short, so I cannot use it for rigging and one Al in the family is more than sufficient ....

Yes the decal issue is a bit of a kit-trait you can expect from Eduards Dual combo line. Rowan, remember the Sopwith Camel Dual build and we faced the same issues when it came to cockades and instrument decals.
