A question about a model

Hi all - I'm just putting the finishing touches on a Heinkel He.280v.4
in 1:72 that I bought off eBay and I'm curious about the kit. Its
resin, well-formed with good detail and the wings and fuselage are
molded as one unit. The canopy is vacuum-formed. The seller stated that
he thought it was a "RECONITION MODEL PROTO TYPE PLANE" or at least
that's the way the auction was listed. He had a couple of others, what
appeared to be a Douglas A-1 Skyraider and a biplane, maybe a
Polikarpov R-5, but I'm not sure about that one. There was no
instruction sheet or decals, but I didn't pay that much for it so I
didn't care.
Has anyone ever come across a kit like this before and who manufactured
it?
Regards,

It's probably a Czechmaster kit.

Or, if the quality isn't all that great with lots of exces flash, a copy of a Czech Master kt. There are a lot of those out there.

There was very little flash, and even the smallest parts were crisp and clear. The resin is a bright grassy green, something I don't usually see. Most of the resin kits I built have been cream colored, white or various (usually lighter) shades of gray. If this is a knock-off, and it sounds like it is, whoever did it is pretty skillful. and for a $5.00 model, I'm not complaining.
