Kit bashing and scratch building in 1/144 scale is turning out to be a real blast. In expensive any way you look at it. The Eduard dual combo gives you the 2 planes you need and the paint and other materials are minimal. If you really want to have some fun, give one of these little guy a try.
This one will end up as a Mistel with an Fw 190D-9 on top. The trolley was scratch built using photos of the built up item and parts for the Dragon He 162 Mistel that were found online.
