Bucker Bu181 Bestmann

Recommended Posts

My original plan was a couple of jet trainers but whilst perusing EBay came across the little Bestmann, a side by side trainer from the Luftwaffe. Turns out the Swiss had some interned ones which were painted up in their red/white neutrality markings, so I am going with that.

Great choice and another unusual one at that. 

 

I can understand how a combat aircraft came down in Switzerland but a trainer can only have been a navigational error, that was going to take some explaining if you were allowed to go home !

 

Look forward to seeing this one getting built

Guess if it was a navigational training flight that student failed :lol:

Seriously though, this should make for a colourful subject :thumbsup:

A few photos of the Special Hobby Bucker Bu181 Bestmann it looks nicely moulder, however I haven’t built a limited production kit before, but looks a simple build. For some reason I didn’t take a photo of the wings sprue. Aim to start this week.

Hi Grahame

 

Have you had a chance to make a start on this one, as I'm really looking forward to seeing this one progress.
