Hi Sergey

Good catch! I was beginning to go nuts looking looking for shots of the bulges in my references - until I found a crystal-clear pic of them on Trautloft's aircraft in Hikoki's "Condor" book.

I'll duly add them when I tackle the kit.

All the best as ever

It looks like they have made the same mistake that Classc Airfraims did, they missed two bulges in front of the windshield.

Nice review, Rowan. This doesn't have Adolf Galland's bird?? Curious. Maybe the AM decal folks will handle that.

Here's a look at Roden's attractive new kit of the Heinkel He 51B-1 in Spanish Civil War markings.
