Here's a review by Andy Brazier (betheyn) of Eduard's new 1/72 scale Spad XIII Late Version. A very nice but also very small model kit!

Thanks for the review Andy. Looks like a very nice model with great detail for 1/72.

Looks like it is priced a bit higher than their other 1/72 kits, but price increases are becoming common for all manufacturers.

Thanks guys, and a big thanks to Jean-Luc for taking the pics.
Yes this kit is tiny, I'm building it at the moment with the help of a magnifying glass. Still not sure whether to spray it or paint it by hand .

I'm 45 and still work in 1/72. In fact, I also dabble in 1/144. So, what's everyone else's excuse?
