I bough the this several years ago as I wanted to build a bundle of interwar FAA aircraft. I always left it as I was worried it was more difficult than I was able to build. I don't know why as I've built some Magna kits and this is a much more refined resin kit than anything Magna have made. The Plover was built to the same spec as the Flycatcher and although the Plover had better performance it was not as robust as the Flycatcher which went onto to be the Fleet fighter.

So further to a request for more Royal Navy subjects its only fitting to start at the beginning. This will be a build of the Holland 1, a 1/72 resin model by Choroszy Modelbud. Clean up on isle 7 i hear you say and you wouldnt be wrong, there is a lot of cleaning up and prep of parts, as youd expect with a limited run resin kit.

Apparently this lot are part of the same kit, however the instructions leave much to your interpretation, a few clues would have been appreciated ! Comments, help, advice, counselling all greatfully accepted ! Cheers Pat
