Hard to choose, something for this GB, but decided to go for this nice modern kit...

I think I might have a Smer version somewhere with better decals so if I find it, I'll build that version. I seem to recall it had a big shark on the side, so fingers crossed I can find it.

 

I hope I don't get into trouble with @Wez for not building this in the French Fancy GB !

 

cheers Pat

Welcome to the Group Build, Pat. 

It is interesting that French aircraft designers were such fans of the parasol wing (or maybe its odd that the British weren't ;)).

 

Cheers

Well obviously I would have loved to see this in the Heller GB but you're making amends by including it here (spread the Heller love)!

 

Good luck with this one.

Good evening Pat,

why are you always choosing kits with protruding sticks in all directions?

Is it show-off or plain masochism? 

Whatever, this is a truly iconic kit, despite all the alleged errors it contains. Do not let that diminish the pleasure of building a beautiful plane.

I did a lot of flying in a MS 237 (No! Not in 1946!) and these parasol wing aircraft are a pleasure to fly.

 

Cheers mate.

Just noticed someone has sneaked some rigging in when I wasn't looking !

Heres my shark, the aircraft is green with aluminium 

 

If anyone has built this one before any tips, or traps to look out for ?

 

Cheers Pat

All these struts and supports will be good practice for my Jules Verne in the French Fancy GB.
