I`ve never built a Lukgraph kit , for those who have , how do they compare with Silver Wings kits ? .

Let`s hope Aims put out the rigging wires set as per the one for the Gladiator , they are very prominent on this bird ! .

Am I the only Britmodeller user who finds the organization of the forums needlessly complex and perplexing?  I would never in a million years have thought to look in a “rumourmonger” area for a new kit announcement.  It’s not a rumour, it’s a fact.  Not the same thing at all.

Lukgraph kits are superb.  Some of the best resin that’s ever been produced.

DH.89 Dragon Rapide coming soon (April / May)
The model’s progress is very good.
All main parts are ready.
Today we present the first of four (Israel, USA and 2 x British) Dragon Rapide profiles.
This is the Israeli version of the late 1940s.

De Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide probably doesn't need an introduction, everyone knows it. We have always liked its shape. Therefore, we decided to release it in 1:32 scale. It is really big by the standards of models produced in resin (dimensions in 1:32 scale is 456 x 332 mm).
The model will be available in our online store: www.lukgraph.pl
We don't know the price yet but it will be as friendly as possible.
The aircraft in the pre-war, war and post-war period was very popular. Many of them fly today to enjoy tourists and aviation enthusiasts.
Paintings of civil aircraft are particularly beautiful.
At the present time, the modeler has no problem making masks or decals for 1 piece (your favorite). We can always help in technical preparation of the project (especially for civilian versions).
The set will include:
- resin castings
- 3D printed Gipsy Six x 2 engine with exhaust pipes
- 3D-printed passenger seats 8 pcs
- 3D printed interiors the pilot's cabin
- photo-etched sheet
- decals
- instruction
The model should appear at the turn of April and May this year.
We hope that on these hard days in the world this message will bring some joy. Below we present box art.

Actually they should be broadly similar (if not exactly the same) as the men standing behind the prototype designing and making are the same.

The difference lays in decals, instruction sheets and boxes - here the authors are not the same people.

Same situation appears when you compare Choroszy and Ardpol 1/72 aircraft - most moulds are made (and even cast) by the same hands.

Cheers
