1/48 Siebel Si-204, Aero C-3 by Special Hobby

Recommended Posts

My son’s girlfriend’s grandfather (stay with me) ‘borrowed’ an Aero C-3A to defect from Czechoslovakia with 2 other families. This kit is therefore number one on this year’s list for me.

That must be an amazing story of escape. They must have flown at treetop level to avoid the Russian and Czech Migs.

Was this the aircraft that landed in West Germany? 2 Air force officers IIRC. They must have nerves of steel.

Looks to be a mighty fine model. I suspect the Si 204D night fighter will be along at some point, and I have always liked the idea of the captured 'AIRMIN4' in RAF markings.:thumbsup:

Please can we keep this on topic and not bring up kit pricing (of other kits), revell interiors or even Tomcats ?

 

Thx

No one has been off topic in six weeks bruh

There have been posts in this thread about revell interiors, tomcat models and kit pricing which I have removed, so yes these were all off topic and you were one of the offenders.  Please keep posts in the rumour section on topic,

Whilst one of my comments may have had a passing reference to Revell interiors it also asked a very pertinent question about the cowlings on the SH Siebel.

 

Once somebody as got their grubby mitts on this kit can they provide a front on view of the cowlings please?  Previous kits have got the shape all wrong and I'm keen to see what SH have done here.

Can a Nord Martinet 701 be built from the German trainer version? I think there are differences in the tail but not sure. Thank yout.

I think they had 3-bladed Ratier propellers, not sure if they all had them or when they were introduced.

 

Not sure about other differences.
