Well, another wonderful little kit by Avis of an appealing subject rendered in great detail, with sound engineering and molding, which makes for a pleasurable build in all departments. 

 

The step-by-step build is here:

 

Even as a short-run kit, these last civil releases by Avis have raised that bar in that category high up.  As you can see, I built three of their recent kits in a row, something I seldom do, but I was enchanted by the subjects and the quality-price ratio. The care on the details, the good instructions, clear and at a readable size, the good decal sheet, the printed clear parts, the accessories included, what a delight!

There is a minor issue with the decal placement under the wing, please refer to the WiP for correction.

As I said elsewhere: It warms the cockles of my heart!

Absolutely beautiful build- the corrections and extra detailing really stand out. That is one unusual and handsome little flying boat. Well done, Moa!

Thanks Teucher and Mike!
It was good to start with, so it just sailed peacefully to completion.

You are both very kind.

Cheers

:yikes:Brilliant, love those low angle shots. One of your figures would be most welcome for scale as those trestles don't work for me.

Definitely my reference for my build of the Cockle.

Stuart, are you going to make me take the model out of its cozy box, and rephotograph it with figures?

You are heartless!!

Stuart, you owe me twenty minutes of my life.

And I did not get your last remark, remember English is not my first language and some cultural references, common phrases or turns may not be known to me.

Superbly done Moa. I know that you mentioned that the basic kit is good but your model is exquisitely finished and gives the impression of the delicacy and intricacy of the original. Beautiful model of a beautiful aircraft.

Much better, quite an attractive little thing really and that is how you 'normally' present your builds...

Beautiful!

I still can't help but wonder what it was built for though, with tiny engines and only one seat!

Hi Ian

I was built for a private person from Australia, as a small sports/"recreational vehicle" (for fishing), but he balked seen the poor performance of the Cockle, and it remained first with Short, and then it was passed to the military.
