Eduard's limited edition Bf 110 C6 is the subject of this very comprehensive review.

Thanks for helping get this going, Jessica. I've started the build and I'm very happy so far.

Russ, a very comprehensive review, but like all box reviews, they're only a tease to what the actual kit builds up as. So I was delighted to read that you've started a review build as well.

This kit was supposed to be a BFC exclusive, so I am a little annoyed at Eduard for putting it out as a general offering.

So, lesson for everyone is don't bother to pay to join the BFC, as you'll be able to get most of the exclusive items eventually anyway.

Joel, thanks for the comments. I'll get the build review up as soon as I can.

Doug, the BFC boxing includes extra resin parts-wheels and hubs, MG15 and tropical filters, extra masks for the tail wheel as well as the third marking option in the decals, so there are a few details you don't get in the limited edition boxing. Eduard has both listed at the same price on their site. I don't know if it makes it worth being a member of the bunny club.

Doug: I have the opposing view re the Bunny Club. I didn't want to pay around £35 to join (by buying a jet fighter kit that I had no interest in whatsoever) in order to get their C-6 kit. I think that kind of attempted inducement is just plain stupid.

Russ: You say in your review that on 29th July 1940 the damage to 2N+RH was 'unknown to what extent.' I'll post a couple of photos of the damage in your build thread for you to see. Also, other known C-6s with Erprobungsgruppe 210 (from Erich Beudel's Flugubuch) were +GH, +NH, +OH, and +PH.
