Here is a review from Jean-Luc Formery (TedMamere) of Eduard's new Weekend edition of their 1/48 scale F.2B. A kit with nice plastic parts but sadly some misprinted decals.

Agreed Jean-Luc. This something that one would expect from a kit produced in the 1960's. There are a couple of issues with the kit that are minor overall and as you mention it does build up nicely. I hope they can get it right next time. The aftermarket cottage companies may step up with a sheet with various cockades and or serial #s. I am encouraging one such manufacturer to do so.
