Nice choice Ratch, I didn't even know Airfix did this kit.

Nice to see you here Ratch, I knew it would'nt be too long before you graced us with another Airfix build.

It will be good to see this one done. I've never built it, nor seen the plastic so look forward to your progress.

 

Cheers.. Dave

Looking forward to this one, Ratch. The Airfix packaging / box art history is a study in itself! I see you ended up with a 'sanitised' version too!

A great wee kit with more great box top artwork.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing yours build up.

 

All the best Greg 👍

Hi Ratch,

 

this is a great plane and the kit is not too bad looking! A lot of potential!

Mine is in white plastic... not the greatest color... for another GB, I guess!

 

Have fun!

Wow - spend two crappy days at work without enough quality time to catch up on this GB and some of these builds are really taking shape. Good going Ratch. I quite like the look of this thing, although those upper wing fabric ribs do look a little heavy. I suppose the next time I look, you'll be decalling and marking an early spot in the GB gallery! 

 

Cheers.. Dave.

Lots of lumps and bumps to like about this brute of a bi-plane. You’ve built a great kit there Ratch and should I see one going for a few bob, I’ll probably nab it thanks to this build.

 

Cheers and nice gallery entry.. Dave
