Hi all,

 

Just finished this exquisite little 1/72 gem. It really is a delight to make - it’s basically a really nice 1/48 kit shrunk 😬. Can’t think of anything in this scale to match it tbh.

 

I’m on a roll of starting a mini collection going of 1/72 eclectic biplanes that take my fancy. Mostly they seem to be older kits though. Can anyone recommend any other well designed kits of that nature? I think I’ve seen most of Eduard’s offerings in WW1 and, obviously Airfix, Tiger Moth, Gladiator and the Vintage Classic range, but anything else?

That's really nice Guy B) 

 

Eduard did a 'Royal Edition' boxing of the Avia B-534 containing the Series II, III & IV kits - 2 of the latter in the box as I recall. The wings are the same but the fuselages different. If you haven't had enough of the 534 series it could be worth a punt, of all the Royal Editions it was probably the least best-selling in the UK and you might find one at a reasonable price :) 

 

Cheers,

Thanks guys, and thanks @Stew Dapple Yes, I’m aware of that boxing, but I would like to make something different!

 

There does seem to be a dearth of high quality biplanes (any era) in 1/72; or am I missing something?

Lovely!! I have this kit precisely to make this option, the machine used for carrier landing trials for Germany's aircraft carrier.

I hope mine comes out as well as yours.

Lovely.  A beautiful rendering of a very attractive aeroplane.  Looks a million years ahead of the old KP kit I used to have (long since scrapped).
