  1. Avis is to release in September 2018 a limited edition 1/72nd Bristol 72 Racer kit - ref. BX72030 Source: http://scalemodels.ru/news/13001-Avis-1-72-Bristol-Racer.html V.P.
  2. It's difficult to recognize the future when it is in the present. As with other many cases in aviation history (and History at large), the American (Shelton) AG-4 Gyro Crusader arrived too soon. Eight years ago, attracted by its aspect, between futuristic and comic book, I made a scratch-built model of the AG-4 Gyro, thinking that there was no chance that any manufacturer would ever issue a kit of it. I am glad I was proven wrong, so others can enjoy the incredibly modern looks of this remarkable plane, created in 1933 and flown in 1935. My scratch of 10 years ago: Here a clip of its test flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1xifECLKFc I will quote myself from that build of long ago -since this house policies preclude me from posting a link to my scratch-build, located somewhere else-: "The retro-futuristic look and curvaceous, graceful lines of the Shelton American Gyro Crusader whisper in your ear “streamlining” and “teardrop”. To anyone familiar with the Bauhaus school of design it wouldn’t be a surprise if this one would have come up from their workshops, but it didn’t. It is actually an American design –many of you already knew it, since the answer is in the question- that had the misfortune of seeing the light of day in the hard post-depression years. Nevertheless the one and only machine built attracted a lot of publicity, the attention of the general public and some remarkable personalities, Amelia Earhart among them. During its life the Crusader had some changes in its landing gear and props and also in the variety of images applied mainly to its nose. In some images its surfaces seem to appear without any inscriptions or images, though. A good reference is: "Crusader: The Story of the Shelton Flying Wing" by Alexander Roca." So we have now the Avis kit in what it came to be known as short run technology. It has, as we all know, its pros and cons. We get those models unlikely to be cater for by the industry giants at an -in general- reasonable price, and we have to deal with something that occupies our modeling skills in a perhaps more demanding and certainly less complacent manner, cleaning flash, refining parts, dealing with the lack of locating devices and some vague fit. So be it. Resealable bag, I like that: Parts' array: Masks included: Decals (will talk about them later): Transparencies. Fair, if not precisely crystalline: The limitations of the media, but nothing a modeller can't deal with...with some skill and patience: Some cleanup is ahead... Instructions, well printed, in good paper, with a few vague points: Transparencies cleaned, washed, given some floor polish: The coffee mesh in which all those parts, especially the very small ones, are washed after the cleanup. Do not lose them!: Parts cleaned up. And man do they need cleanup: Not the sharpest of molds: Again, the fixes seem easy enough: The engine fronts also need a serious cleanup. Not sure if they attempted here to represent the things behind the openings, or these are just plastic blobs. In any case I will open those up and simulate the engine inside:
  3. Below is my completed 1/72 Avis RFB Fantrainer 400 in The Royal Thai Air Force colours. I thoroughly enjoyed building this kit, yes, it's a short run kit, but, with patience and plenty of dry runs, trimming and very little filling you can achieve a good result. This aircraft is a real tail sitter and you need to be creative as to where you put the required ballast, I use a product called RIPMAX and white glue to fix it in. Comments welcome ! Here is the etched brass fret included in the kit, I was unable to use the small aerials as they were way beyond my modelling skill and patience, any advice gratefully received on how to use them please, thank you.

  5. After looking for something different for this GB, I came across this on that famous Lowestoft model suppliers website. I knew little about the British Arctic Air Route Expedition and set about trying to find out more. This led to me purchasing a copy of Dancing on Ice by Jeremy Scott, whose father J.M Scott was a member of the expedition team. The expedition took place between the war years, returning to Britain in 1932 and was one of the last great adventures into what was then uncharted territory. In my opinion the book is well worth a read.

  11. I'm calling it done..... This is the 1/72 scale La-200 (with Korshun radar) kitted by the Russian manufacturer 'Avis'. The La-200 was an attempt by Lavochkin to produce a twin-engined, radar-equipped all-weather fighter - in competition with the Mikoyan I-320 and Sukhoi's early Su-15 - a role eventually fullfilled by the Yak-25. Its a limited run kit - accurate, but lots of fettling needed - the worst part in the outward-canted, levered suspension, trailing link main undercarriage - a very weak multi-part assembly that won't support the weight of the model. I had to use a clear plastic prop to take the strain...... Still, its a rare subject unlikely to be kitted by any of the mainstream manufacturers - so more power to Avis Note the clear plastic prop - needed to take the weight off the weak main undercarriage. The underwing fuel tanks have incorrect pylons that must be altered..... Note the exhaust for the forward turbojet under the centre fuselage. That weak main undercarriage...... It's just so sad looking .......... More photos showing construction here. Ken
