Blohm und Voss 40
Czech Model Bv-40, 1/48

Jim Sanderson

1 sprue light grey injected plastic, 11 resin pieces, vacuformed caopy and water slide markings for two schemes. Again, resin details rescue the kit. The cockpit, gun trays and take-off gear are replaced with resin pieces. The cockpit has nice detail, and give a good impression of the cramped conditions. The chin rest cracks me up. The control surface actuating arms required a good deal of cleaning up; they're heavy, and heavily attached to the sprue. The actuators on the tail plane look like lumps, and should be removed and replaced with streched sprue. The directions mention rigging of the take off gear, but locating holes aren't marked on the fuselage. Overall, the fit is rough, so keep the cyano and sandpaper close to hand.

Here's some scans of this kit from Gary Webster being the first two and also the Eagle Talon kit - both in the same scale . Thanks muchly to Gary

This was also available as a vacform in 1/72 from VP Canada , I've built that kit but it's not great , stick to the CM kit - William.
Below are the instructions and finished kit for this.
