Well, I think that as well you are best in the field, that only you can give an answer about this kit. So maybe better to wait you to get this kit and give your opinion about.

Cheers :)

Hi mate,  :-salut

Surely not... Because I don't like this sort of "short-run" kit... I prefer modifying a well injected kit... And also perhaps in 1/48 scale.

Thats true, short runs need more work to get it into the basci shape and then you can work on model. I have seen long time ago Bf109G-10 made by Zlinek and that was the best kit in the 1/72 scale but problem was that it was not last long on market as well it was short run. Maybe you can make some conversions and there is 1/48 conversions sets but prices are sometimes too high:

Yes, I know Falcon's conversion kit and it's not so accurate as we can think, espacially the canopies... Top glasses are flat contrary to the reality where these glasses are slightly curved...
