F-rsin 1/144 Saro Princess

Recommended Posts

Picked up one of these resin monsters at Telford.  First impressions very good, although a couple of bubbles to deal with.

Much better quality than their Brabazon, where you could see the grain in the wood from the master.  

Instructions and decals to follow.  Beaching gear included.

I always remember seeing the mothballed airframes at Cowes and on the Solent before they were scrapped.

Sounds great.  Nothing on their website though - or the Brabazon for that matter.

I'm sure the F-rsin stand had a 1/144 scale Princess on show and it was their own?

Yes - looked very good, in the early all silver scheme, at (I think) £80.  I didn't take the plunge.  I wonder if the decals will be for the later colour scheme (as shown on the AMG picture) or just the early one?

To be clear the Brabazon was done over a decade ago, and required attention to sand out the grain marks from the wooden master - a job I still need to complete!

The Princess is not a F-RSIN product. It is a private venture by Christian Tauban.   Therefor not on the website of F-RSIN and cannot be ordered there...

Christian only sells it on E-bay. It is not available elsewhere AFAIK 

Any links? A search of current and completed listings for Saro Princess doesn't show it.

Yes a link or possibly an email would be most appreciated.
