1/72 Avis RFB Fantrainer 400


Recommended Posts

Below is my completed 1/72 Avis RFB Fantrainer 400 in The Royal Thai Air Force colours.

I thoroughly enjoyed building this kit, yes, it's a short run kit, but, with patience and plenty of dry runs, trimming and very little filling you can achieve a good result.

This aircraft is a real tail sitter and you need to be creative as to where you put the required ballast, I use a product called RIPMAX and white glue to fix it in.

Comments welcome !

Here is the etched brass fret included in the kit, I was unable to use the small aerials as they were way beyond my modelling skill and patience, any advice gratefully received on how to use them please, thank you.

Hi Joachim,

 

I had fun researching this one on the internet and watching the videos as well.

Looks like I have set a benchmark for my future and regular builds !!

 

Best regards

Colin.
