Here is a first look at the new kit from Larry Thompson of Pegasus Hobbies. This is the latest in their line of EZ Snapz and in my most humble opinion, it's the nicest of the lot.

It comes in there regular EZ Snapz box and all sprues are wrapped in plastic to avoid damage. The canopy is also very clear and wrapped separate, As in all the ez series, there is a very low parts count.

This one has one clear and a whopping 29 light grey parts which make up the entire model. You also get a choice of gear up or down. so actually you use 27 parts in total.

The interior is nicely done, with only a few ejector pin marks to clear up. Most everything in the cockpit is on the sidewalls and is nicely done, so a little painting and drybrushing can yield great results!

The main gear legs are integral with the doors but painting and a wash will fix that! The decals have no exposed carrier film and are sharp.

When I get this built I will send some pics and let you know how they go on but I think they will do nicely. You need to provide your own stencils thought.

The instructions are nicely done and easy to read. As I have with all the other kits in this series, I recommend it highly.

Quick build, nice lines, good decals and instructions, cheap price and good looks!

Most of all, It looks like an Emil, so it is an Emil!
