Built one a few years ago, not a bad kit.  Just be prepared for working 
in pewter.
The engine comes in nineteen parts (separate cylinders, pipes).  The 
cockpit was passable, but
would best be served with etched brass and scrarchbuilding.  The plastic 
is white instead of the grey used today.  Decals are for Voss F. 103 and 
MvR  425/18.  I find the Dragon kit  much more hassle free.  Of course 
you can always wait for the  Eduard kits  coming out sometime in the 
next few years.  Providing you can afford them.
Hope that helps.
