Hats off (or chapeau! as I believer the younger, more hip are apt to say)to anyone who makes kits of such obscure types. Ditto to anyone who got inside the actual aircraft. They're a lot braver than I am!

Obscure indeed! It made only one flight with just a pilot and was heavily damaged on landing, never flying again.

 

Cheers,

I mean, you’d never guess by looking at it!

Are you sure the pilot didn't just run up the wings and jump off the top ?

I wonder what the gents in the photo on the box top would think to know they've been immortalized in a painting on the cover of a model kit?    :hmmm:

So I built this kit.  I don't know what I'm doing because I usually build Second World War aircraft, but the kit goes together well.  The white and light gray sprues you see in the photo above are made from some sort of very soft, spongy plastic.  That works well for the wing incidence linkages, because you need to bend them.  The tiny sprue with engine parts (middle right above) gave me trouble though because the soft plastic crumbled when I tried to clean up the parts.
