    Hi all

    This is one of DeWaynes Captured War prize offerings.

    The model comes as a download for $2.00 :shock:
    It has one and a half pages of history and Photos/drawings of the plane, two pages of parts, half page of construction diagrams and the sacle is 1/50.

    I started the build again with the wings and wheels.
    Then went on to the main body of the aircraft.
    Not much done to date, but will post more tomorow

    Regards

    Rob

    Hi all

    I should have posted these the other night :roll:

    The whole model went together very,very well with no fit problems at all.

    It is worth taking a bit of time on the wings when building this. The wings are quite thick at the root, to do this the design has an extra part to be added. This takes time to get them both right so they look the same :roll:
    The only bit I have not fitted is the aerial behind the cockpit, all these small models are given to the local kids as well as my pwn to play with.
    It would not have lasted two seconds and might have ripped the paper if fitted.

    For $2.00 its a great model to build and well worth the cash :D

    Well enough rammble on to the photos

    Next

    The last two

    If you are into the small scale aircraft then this has to be a must, it looks a lot better than the photos show.
    I enjoyed building it and i think others will also :D

    Have fun

    Pretty cool, I enjoy Marek's 1/50 builds and most suffer the same fate, flown once or twice by the kids then circular filed by same.
