Bristol Bulldog MK.I Latvia - Airfix 1/72


Recommended Posts

First for all which doesn't know the history LATVIA was not NAZI, so Latvian Swastika are older the NAZI swastika. Latvia uset it from 1918 to 1940 when lost independence against Soviets. My latest finished kit a Airfix Bristol Bulldog MK.I in Latvian markings from the 1930-th. My moulds are from the 1990-th and are bad quality. Decals are custom made by a friend of my. I forgot the riging at landing gears, added it after first photo shot. When I will got a moulds from 1970-80-th I will made a Finnish one. Enjoy it.

Really great job on those old kits (which Airfix appear to be re-re-re-releasing again ! oh for a re-tool!). The best builds of Bulldogs I have seen.

I don't think that I've seen a better pair of Airfix Bulldogs. Superb builds with perfect finish and rigging!

 

If I'm not mistaken, you have corrected or exchanged the original propellers, too. Maybe Aeroclub's replacements?

 

Kind regards,
