Here are a few shots of one of Classic Airframes' latest releases, the Heinkel He-51 'Legion Condor'. Decals are included for six Spanish Civil War aircraft; I finished my model in Adolf Galland's markings, applied over PollyScale paints.
I was unsure if this aircraft carried a radio, so I left off the aerials pending further research. Overall, it's a good kit which goes together rather quickly. It probably took me longer to rig the model with monofilament than it did to complete the rest of assembly!
Recommended to the experienced biplane modeller.
