I had this GB in mind at Telford last weekend so was chuffed to pick up an original Matchbox He.115 for a tenner.
I have made one before but cocked it up and binned it - my fault, not the kits!
Revell have re-issued this kit but theirs doesn't have the Finnish decal option.

There were two sets of the same decals included, which is just as well as the blue part of the Finnish swastika seems to have faded away completely on one set?!

Looking forward to starting and making a better job this time!

EDIT: It has just struck me that the missing Swastika on the second sheet is deliberate as the tail swastikas for the Germany version are also gone - presumably from a later issue of the kit when the swastika became a banned symbol in some European nations.
