This is one that been a loft dweller for a very long time (nearly 50 years possibly). Not the easiest kit I've ever built but there aren't too many parts to deal with. Brushed painted in a mix of Xtracolor, Revell  and Humbrol paints. Decals from the spares box as the kit examples were beyond recovery.

While I had known about DH 10. I had literally no idea there was a model of it. 

 

You did a great  job on it.

This is just fantastic!  I have been tempted by this kit but have also been afraid to make the attempt.  But your work here is an inspiration indeed.  Thanks for posting. You have done a great job on this!

Never seen one of these built up before and always wondered what it would look like, now I know, that is superb Derek, you have done a lovely job of it.

That's truly beautiful work! I'm impressed with the rigging.

Great job on a type I have never seen before (glad they never threw one of those into the A/C Recognition competitions back in the day :) ).

Wow, this is a bit emotional for me, to see this kit built.

I bought this kit when I was ten or eleven, at a yard sale. It sat half-built on a high shelf for 30-odd years. About two years ago my dad dusted it off, he'd started building again a few years earlier after his retirement. He sent me some photographs of his progress over the weekend, he was doing the rigging on it, I was impressed at how good it was starting to look.

 

Anyway, my dad never finished it. On the Monday he passed away of a heart attack. The kit is still sitting on a shelf in his study, with the rigging wires hanging limply across it.

 

It deserves to be finished. Thank you for your post and the inspiration it has given me, I hereby commit to getting mine and my dad's across the finish line :)
