I was sent this kit in error by Deanos Games, who kindly allowed me to keep it. The detail and fit are very good, with only a couple of awkward parts. The first is that the (well detailed) cockpit tub is slightly too wide and needs filing to allow the fuselage to fit between the wings (I dry assembled with tac first) - if you follow the instructions, by this stage the fuselage will be assembled and then it would be much harder to fettle and fit. The second is part A17 that fits in a hole on the underside of the port wing in step 9; however this is later covered by a decal Luftwaffe cross that would be nearly impossible to fit cleanly around the part. The decals themselves are good quality and shrank into the (recessed) panel lines, so this hole was visible later (allowing you to fit A17 right at the end of the build).

The paints are in small plastic pots that explode everywhere on opening.

The canopy is very thin, if a little brittle, and comes in three parts, allowing it to be modelled open or closed.

As a couple other reviewers have mentioned there are some very small and delicate parts in this kit. A simpler, easier to build, 109 is Airfix's Bf109G-6 (A02029A) kit (note: model only, no paints, etc.); it has fewer parts, omitting the cockpit detail; variable flaps & rudder; pitot tubes; and comes with a single piece canopy.

Too many small parts for this to be a 'starter kit'. The paint colours do not match at all the colour chart. The light grey is actually sky blue, the green looks grey, and the dark grey is more green. It is a horrible mess once painted, I threw mine the bin in disgust.

This kit is very detailed, having a three part canopy, complicated components and an engine peice which can be shown. It looks great finished, although it is definitely not a kit for a beginner modeller, as in some parts it is very fiddly

Overall I am quite happy with it

Nice to have complete kit in one, no extra expense. Great for the new model maker, not too fiddly and quick to complete. Not a Toy but looks good with others on nylon line suspended from the ceiling.

Great little starter kit got my grandson. Everything you need in the box except for scissors, emery board and I recommend you buying some nail clippers. They are great for trimming :-)
