Despite the box-art, this edition of the Revell 1/72 Junkers F13 includes all the necessary parts for the F13W floatplane version. I used it as my basis for a model of Construction Number 650 "Biene", which was temporarily renamed "Eisvogel" when it was part of the Junkers Spitsbergen Expedition of 1923, registered as D 260. I used Master-X resin replacements for the kit ailerons. I intended ordering one of the Master-X conversions and scavenging the ailerons, but once Lumír at Master-X found out I only wanted the ailerons, he just sent me the ailerons
I've got myself two of this kit, because I'm interested in building Construction Number 650 at two very different moments in its life. This aircraft was part of the Junkers Spitsbergen Expedition of 1923, registered as D-260. It spent the next decade knocking around Germany, Russia, Estonia and north Norway under various registrations, before ending up as the property of Nord-Norges Aero in 1932, registered as LN-ABH. Passengers were flown on sightseeing trips by Norway's famous aviatrix, Gidsken Jakobsen, until June 1934, when it "lost its engine" near Balest
I have a favour to ask, I am building the kit below, in the Airliners Group Build here on BM My question is, what other decal and livery options are available for this kit ? I believe the ones included in the kit are for the prototype aircraft. Any help really appreciated Cheers Pat
