They're acceptable, but nothing more... they've got outline and detail errors out the wazoo, which is a common theme with the company. Dragon's mistake was trying to meet Trumpeter on their playing field with rivets, and they chose an incredibly poor airframe to do this on... note that the rest of their line has not been savaged NEARLY as bad, their 1/32 110s are apparently awesome by all accounts for instance.
Dragon made a mistake and learned from it. Trumpeter constantly makes mistakes, and does not. Ergo, I have faith that Dragon will do a good job.
I absolutely love this plane, but I've got the Tamiya 1/48 one pretty far along, so my enthusiasm for the Dragon announcement is a bit more muted than it would have been otherwise. I do hope that they do a 1/32 Ar-234B, however...

I see Steve, but after the horror I've seen on the Mustang, and above all considering what masterpieces others can create in the same scale (i.e. Tamiya Spit), I'm not gonna believe it until I see it..
