I'm looking for the above, I know with the release of this subject in 1/32 scale in the last few years there has been discussion of the kits released by the various manufactures & I should have paid attention to them but I didn't. So without a lot of dramatic postings, could some of you more knowledgeable guys just post which one you think & why? I have a project with a certain paint scheme from an older Hasegawa re-released kit. Even though the kit looked nice, it is still an old mold & I was looking for a kit of more recent molds that doesn't have fit issues, if that is possible.

Thanks in advanvce,

In simple terms the CH kit is an easier build with better, sharper more accurate details.
The CH kit is a little off in the upper cowl but the Eduard kit is off aft of the cockpit (although I think this is easily fixable).
In my experience the CH kit goes together with no filling, whereas the Eduard has to be coaxed a bit.
The CH kit needs some minor corrections (there are plenty of online builds that chronicle these) but you'll find them easy to do.
