This kit is a rebox of the Trimaster model.  I had only a few minor fit problems and those were at the fuselage wing joints.

Here is a comparison between the Tamiya kit on the left and the Trimaster/Italeri kit on the right.  Notice the different heights of the noses.

The paints I used are from Italeri's Modelmaster 2 series.  Kits decals were used, except for the  swastika and fuselage number..........I got these 2 items came from the Tamiya kit.   I weathered with oil paints and airbrushed Gunze smoke.

I finished my Dora as Robert "Bazi" Weiss' plane.  For markings I used a color profile that I found on the Internet, but for the camo scheme I used Italeri's painting guide in the instructions that came with the kit.
