AMP 1/48 Bristol Sycamore RAAF This is the recently released AMP 1/48 Bristol Sycamore built as an early Australian bird during operations in Woomera. Well this is somewhat of a record for me – a relatively new kit, built almost OOB including kit decals and finished in less than 5 years! Generally the AMP kit is nicely detailed with options for various versions. The kit includes a small etched fret with finer details. A comment, the plastic is very brittle and some of the smaller parts were broken and subsequently replaced with wire and plastic card. AMP is to be commended for providing a nice rendition of an important subject and it makes an interesting addition to the collection. Overall an enjoyable build with my only comment being to take your time and dry fit and dry fit some more. The glazing nose structure requires careful assembly and I used 5 minute epoxy and tape to get a reasonable fit. Cheers and regards, PJ
