I picked up the limited edition 1/72 Eduard Bf109f dual boxing at a model show recently. It's a really impressive kit of the quality you'd expect from Eduard and provides no less than 14 decal options.

There is however one flaw that could very easily catch you out. The kit provides parts to build one Bf109F-2 (or a F-1 with some effort) and one Bf109F-4. You'd think that you could build any combination of one of the F-2 schemes and one of the F-4 schemes, but no, that is not the case. Some of the F-2s use parts from the F-4 sprues that you need for the F-4, in particular the wheel wells and upper wings. You could very easily end up being unable to complete a second model from this dual box. Seems like a bit of an oversight. 

I still have the F-4 to build, but I chose the F-2 scheme such that it won't impact the choices of F-4 available.

As a comparison with my Zvezda Bf109F-2:

Beautiful F-2 in just striking colors.  Well built and exceptional finish.  Thanks for sharing.

Lovely model, and you are going to have a lot of mottling to do in the future!

Good job I enjoy mottling!

As I said before, nice work! : )

 

Also a really nice 1:72 collection there!

Do you have a gallery somewhere by any chance?

All of my models are on my Instagram page, or can be seen on my flikr account(s). Also, I generally post on the yearbook subforum each year
