    Flying Billboard

    From the Tasman boxing of the old Heller kit. Neon letters/frames were supplied as 3D-printed parts. The kit itself was moulded in really soft, white plastic with lots of warpage so it needed a bit of work. I also replaced the fuselage windows with acetate. Decals from the kit.
  3. Hi DH 89 is a very beautiful, classic airplane of Golden Wing era. Surprisingly to me this passanger airplane had quite wide military use. I have made model of DH 89 M - bomber version armed with 3 machine guns and some bomb load. The particular markings are for airplane no. 6311 of Republican Airforces, squadron "Alas Rojas" based in August 1938 in Sarinena . The conversion is "free hand" (scratch). Model was a Heller 1/72 kit, now it is also available from Airfix. Here it is: This book, which served as main source for works (inc. profile, drawind, photos): https://www.amazon.com/Aviones-guerra-civil-espanola-1936-1939/dp/8486629403 I hope you like it. I made it about 10 yeras ago. Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
  4. Kiwi Models has just released a new boxing from the Heller's 1/72nd de Havilland DH.89M Dragon Rapide kit - ref. Source: http://www.kiwiresin.com/_p/prd1/4636008201/product/de-havilland-89m-military-rapide. V.P.
  5. I intend this weekend to do a 'speed build' of an old Heller Dragon Rapide, as part of a GB on another forum. I am taking this as my subject, from the old Profile number header, a commrcial machine pressed into service as a trainer flying in 1940: I would like to know, if possible, what the pattern for the lower wing is, rather than hurriedly guess.... Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    DH 89 Dragon Rapide, AONS, 1940

    Almost finished a Frog Dragon Rapide, using Heller kit decals, for No. 1 Air Observers Navigation School, RAF, 1940, as illustrated on the box top. The upper surfaces are camouflaged. Only reference I can find is a profile in Scale Aircraft Modelling vol.14 no.3. Niggling questions that the illustrations and instructions do not answer as follows: - were the interplane struts yellow or same colour as wing uppersurface? - should the civil registration (G-ADBW) appear under the wings? - would roundels have appeared on the upper wings? Type A or B ? (not supplied in kit, not illustrated in profile). Has anyone seen a photo of this particular aircraft as G-ADBW ? Any assistance would be appreciated.
