Can anyone truly confirm whether the recent two 1/32 planes from Revell US are or are not the exact same kits as the two from Revell Germany?

Great difference in price, the boxes are the same size.

They are the Ju-88 Battle of Britain and the Heinkel He 111 P.

I have heard both opinions locally, some modellers will ONLY buy Revell Germany. Is this valid or just speculation?

Hey there Joe,

They are in fact the exact same kit, just in a Revell USA box. I think the only difference between the kits are different markings (but even that I am not 100% sure of).

I just happen to have both of those kits in stock at the moment as well.
