During the recent Trainer Group Build here on BM, I decided to build my Magna Hawker Henley. This is only the second Resin kit I have every built, but if you want to build a Henley, you only have this one or the Formaplane vacform. This is the Work in Progress Please let me know what you think cheers Pat
Despite being old enough to know better, having recently found this kit again after I mislaid it, it seemed only right that I build it during this iconic GB. This GB will no doubt be awash with other Hawker Henleys, so I'm afraid it just shows a distinct lack of imagination on my part. I haven't built a Formaplane vacform before, so this will be a first. Also I have an old Airfix Hurricane which I plan to use for parts to supplement the vacform parts. Fortunately the kit comes with scaled plans, so I can immediately see whether a part is suitable or not. Heres the kit, which compared to a Rareplanes Supermarine 224 I built a while ago looks a bit more agricultural. However let's see how it goes. All tips, encouragement and Micky taking greatly appreciated cheers Pat Edit : As you will see from the thread below, I had originally intended building the Formaplane vacform version but will now be building the Magna resin version instead ! I have only ever built one resin kit before and never used metal parts so lots to learn ! cheers Pat
