Patrik Posted June 23, 2013 Share Posted June 23, 2013 (edited) Can you please, I mean MPM guys, give us your comments on the issues arised in this thread? http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234941573-vickers-vincent-mki-172-azur-frrom/ Thanks Patrik Bought my Vincent at Modellbrno today. While the kit is really very nice and I can only recommend it, the two engines are a bit of a conundrum. The smaller one is the very same as supplied with the Vildebeest Mk.III kit and it looks quite like a Pegasus to me. The bigger one is for sure not the sleeve valve Perseus. There was a notice earlier on the FRROM web site that the Vincent kit would be supplied with a correct (bigger) size Pegasus. Unfortunately the notice is not there anymore (or I cannot find it). So this can be the case, however I am quite sure the plastic exhaust manifolds will not fit with the bigger engine. I bought also the brand new Special Hobby Vildebeest Mk.IV in Brno today. Once more the same basic Vildebeest kit with addition of the Perseus engine, its cowling and the three-bladed propeller. For some reason you get here the “smaller” Pegasus too. Once again highly recommended but there is one criticism that goes to the manufacturer. The original Vildebeest Mk.III kit was supplied without the interior parts for the third cockpit (behind the pilot). This was nicely corrected for the Vincent which allows you to leave the third cockpit open. Unfortunately the same option was neglected in the Mk.IV Vildebeest packing. In my opinion really disappointing. Edited June 23, 2013 by Patrik Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
