That is great news - could you quietly implore them to have fixation locating pins on the fuselage for the new stuff for 1/48 scale - eg the Planned MS 406 French Fighter

as that's the downside regularly pointed out in reviews

 

I do agree it seems to be a great company - when the MS 406 is released for sale ( or announced ) I will buy direct from you

 

kind regards

David

I haven't taken one out of it's packaging yet so have only peaked through the cellophane. From what I can see they look like decently detailed kits but didn't notice the lack of locating pins.

my source - Brett Green - I point out that he is wrong  in the review - regards the Canopy issue -

as you clearly can also have the Canopy in the Open and Closed Position - according to the Photos of the Clear Sprue

Dora Wings Kit No. DW48017 – Marcel Bloch MB. 151C.1

 

Review Type: First Look.

Advantages:

Cleanly moulded; crisply recessed and subtle surface textures; welcome subject; useful options.

Disadvantages:

Canopy moulded closed  ( wrong ! actually 2 options - closed and open )

; absence of locating pins on major parts means that care will be required for alignment.

Conclusion:

This is a good looking and well detailed kit of a neglected subject.

Dora Wings' 1/48 scale Marcel Bloch MB. 151C.1 is cleanly moulded, features crisply recessed surface textures and useful photo-etched parts.

If you have a few models under your belt you won't have any trouble with this kit. Just take your time cleaning up, aligning parts, test-fitting frequently, and you'll have an attractive and quite unique result.

 

This is a far better review - shows the entire Model and the Instructions Sheet

 

really nice Model Kit by the looks of it !
