Or hit up a fellow forumite that "might" have some leftover decals from the F version....

Hi Jeff.

Almost but not quite. To build the "F" from the new release you need to purchase WNW accessory sprue 132E0013 which provides the BMW engine and cowling from the original DVII F kit.

cheers   :)

thanks for the tip. i hadn't actually even looked at the accessories page.

looks like there are accessory parts to build other DVIIs, too.

For people who already have this kit,  have a close look at the trailing edges of the upper wing. I have friends who say it is short moulded by as much as 3mm at some point on their kit. Perhaps it hasn't affected all kits, just a few.  :-\
Has anyone else noticed this? Is it an issue with the mold being past its best, or is it a quality control issue, I wonder?

Cheers

Mine was short-shot on the upper wing trailing edges.  It also had a few other short-shots on small parts that were easy fixes.

Wmoran, thanks for mentioning the short shot moulding. Would you mind also checking the cowl part for Berthold's machine? Is it short short molded and distorted?

Cheers

Everything looked good with all of the cowl parts.  I didn't notice the wing problem until I started to glue the two upper wing halves together and noticed the trailing edges didn't match up.  After application of putty and some careful sanding, the upper wing looks okay, but I've been out of the hobby a few years and my eyes are no longer calibrated, especially now that I need to use reading glasses.  I guess I'll know how much the finished wing is off once the lozenge decals are applied.
