The Revell 2 seater was the old Frog kit, I think Revell may have reissued the Dragon single seater as well.

The Dragon kit seems to be the best. Good surface detail, some etch, nice internals like cockpit and wheel wells. Full engine exposed option. The fit is a little challenging, but nothing dramatic. Might be a little hard to find right now? Don't forget to put some weight in the nose!

Yes, they did. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-04324-dornier-do-335-a-1a-pfeil--128689 In 2000, which means it's yet another kit that's been sitting in my stash for 20 years...... It looks like Platz reissued it last year.

Dragon for me to. There are more than one boxes.

Hobby 2000 had also rebox the Dragon kits.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Was thinking about the Hobbyboss kit but as was noted the props are turned the wrong way and the correction kit seems hard to find.

I am looking at getting a 1/72 Dornier Pfeil. What are the best options around?

There are also Lindberg and HobbyBoss, maybe some others.

Whatever you do, avoid the Lindberg. Their mid 60s range of mainly German 1/72 kits is mainly horrible. Say about their 50s kits what you will but at least they have charme (and some are rather good IMHO).

My Dragon 335 is a 2-seater.

I am pretty certain they did at least 3 or 4 boxings, including trainer and Nightfighter.

5010---B-6, 5009 with a bubbled rader operator canopy, second cockpit, radar antennas, nose wheel and bulged canopy for B series;

5015---A-12, in recent references should be A-10, 5009 with a second instructor seat;

The Revell / Dragon single seater is a nice kit, here with new decals:

The FROG / Matchbox (Revell) is nice for the decal option:
