  1. Start of a build of a kit from a new to me company Valom from the Czech Republic. Its a short run low pressure injection moulded kit which I think means the moulds are made from a metal other than the tool steel used by the big companies. I have never built a short run kit before and I admit I was a bit worried about what I would get in the box but with the encouragement of a few other modellers particulary General Melchett I took the plunge and ordered from Oxonian Plastics.

The engine castings are resin mouldings and are a lovely model of the original Bristol Peggy engines.

IMG_20191211_164021687 by Stuart, on Flickr I decided to have a break from tiny bits and cut out the fuselage window holes fitted to the Sparrow and fit the glazing. The fuselage moulding is pretty thick and the plastic is a soft grade that doesnt cut very easily cutting the slots took a lot of time and the glazing was a bit crap.
