  1. I'm normally loathe to do RFIs, especially when, as in this case, my own clumsiness lets a good kit down, but this is perhaps a special circumstance, as much of the kit in question was a gift. Earlier this year, which seems about a hundred years ago at this point, I built some Polish Spitfires. I guess some people liked the thread, because I got a PM from @GrzeM , who had seen I was interested in building IBG's RWD-8 kit; Grzegorz knows some of the people over at Arma Hobby (now lamentably out of the resin game, though I'm excited to see what they'll do in the plastic kit arena), and he'd showed my build thread to them; they offered to send me their corrected resin wing and engine cowl for the kit, and Grzegorz, who knew I wanted to build a Polish air force model (none of IBG's two, soon to be three boxings of the kit have PAF markings, even though for one, a Polish air force aircraft is the box art!) scrounged around and found some exceedingly rare decals to allow me to build one. All of this was exceptionally kind on the part of everyone concerned, especially seeing as, having seen some of my builds, they knew the end result would not necessarily show their products to advantage. There are a number of errors present here, all of my own making. The only suitable Polish national markings I had were for PZL P.7s and P.11c aircraft, and those are noticeably larger than the ones on the RWD-8. Additionally, I carelessly damaged the serials, which were red, and had to replace them with some WW1 Pegasus RFC serials and the kit RWD.8 rudder markings, which are black and white, respectively. Any other errors you spot are of course also my own. I'm also, as you'll soon see, a poor photographer. Build thread here.
  2. IBG Models from Poland (http://ibgmodels.com/) is to release a new tool 1/72nd RWD-8 kit - ref.72501 - RWD-8 PWS - ref.72502 - RWD-8 DWL Sources: http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/Ausstellungen/Nuernberg2015/Bilder_AT/Bilder_AT_1.htm http://www.modellversium.de/galerie/2-ausstellungen/11739-spielwarenmesse-nuernberg-2015-teil-2-verschiedene-hersteller.html V.P.
  3. Here is my take on IBG's recent release RWD-8 kit. An initial trainer rather like Britain's Tiger Moth, the parasol-winged RWD-8 was made by two manufacturers, DWL for the civilian market and PWL for the military and civil markets. The main difference, sfaik, is in the undercarriage, and the kit helpfully includes both types. The components were quite fine and hard to remove without breaking but overall the build was quite intuitive and went well. The decal option was a little disappointing (a single rather drab civilian flying school example rather than the military version illustrated on the box) so I did some research online and found a crashed example, serial 34-73, which I was able to mock up using my spares box. The Polish chequers on the rudder are undoubtedly too big and the underwing letters/numbers are a litle ropey but passable if you don't look too closely. Overall, a nicely-moulded kit of an attractive little aircraft and an enjoyable build.
