Legion Condor Dual Combo
1:48 Eduard Limted Edition


1140a.jpg


The Legion Condor was a unit formed by Hitler to assist Franco in the Spanish Civil War. It was composed of German "volunteers" from the Air Force and Army. It is widely acknowledged that the German Forces perfected the techniques they would use in World War II during this time. Originally He 51 aircraft were sent to Spain but this period saw the introduction of the Bf 109 to the Luftwaffe. This was to be cross over from Bi-planes to the more modern mono-planes and was to prove that the older aircraft were outclassed by the newer ones. The He 51 suffered many loses in air-to-air combat and was switched to the ground attack role with the Bf 109 taking over the fighter role.

The Kits
For this limited edition combo Eduard have boxed their own excellent Bf 109E kit along with the excellent Roden He 51 kit.

He 51
This is the plastic from Roden. This kit has been previously reviewed here. Eduard have also included a sheet of photo etch, tape masks and decals for four aircraft.

Conclusion
