I had this kit for a while now and I decided to build it as a fast build, OOB.
It's an interesting kit, although a little difficult. I've shot a full detailed video review, but the filmed material is still raw. I'm going to post the link as soon as I upload it to YT.
Here's the artwork on the box:
It has three marking options: two Romanian and a German one. It may seem surprising, but Romania was the main operator of the plane at the beginning of Barbarossa, having two squadrons equipped with this type (approx 30 aircraft out of approx 90 produced)
I choose the grey (early) version, flown by sublocotenent aviator (junior locotenent) Teodor Moscu, from 51st Fighter Squadron.
The kit is a short run, carrying the expected problems: no locator pins, poor detail in places, sink marks. As the building advances, I have to say that it is better than expected and the main parts are fitting well. A part called in instructions is missing from the sprue (not lost - missing) and the wings have bores for guns but no guns either in the kit. I scratch built wing cannons, but I'm not quite sure yet if 112B1 had wing cannons or nose only (I need to check it up).

Not much to be seen after closing the fuselage:
That's the current progress - more coming soon.
