Hi, A second post with vacu model. This is Polish tourer/sport airplane RWD-13 (1/72 vacu by Broplan company). More about this machine can be read for example here: http://www.aviastar.org/air/poland/rwd-13.php It was developed from experience gathered with earlier tourers by RWD: RWD-2, RWD-5, RWD-6 and first of all the RWD-9. Two latest types (RWD-6 and then RWD-9) won twice fameous Challanges - a light airplanes competitions organized in Europe in begining of thirties. It is more or less OOB, if vacu can be OOB. Some details are of course added. She is wearing markings of Romanian ambulance of East front. The pecularity is, that those machines were piloted by women pilots. More on this exceptional squadron ("Escadrila Alba" - the "White Squadron") can be read for example here: http://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/171506-escadrila-alb%C4%83-romanian-women-in-skies-during-wwii/ I made this model some years ago. Now there are kits of it in 1/72 (resin and polystyrene) as well as 1/48 (resin only) Please have a look at the photos - any comments welcomed Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
