1/72 new Whitley kits

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Czech company Fly anounced for 2011 a whole range of Whitley bomber in 1/72 scale - Mk.I//III/V. I will post more details once available.

Cheers

Libor

now that does sound interesting. There's certainly a gap in the market for a new tool Whitley. Sure its an ugly plane, but it played its part during the early years of the war :) Do keep us updated Libor.

Are you sure this is not the old Frog kit re-popped as the box art looks very familiar at the bottom, and those DC-9's, I am sure I have seen them some where else as well

Yes, I'm quite sure, its new tool.

The DC-9 is original Fly kit, the Swiss version appeared under AZ Model label.

My old Novo Whitely is beginning to look increasingly redundant in my stash. It might be time to move it on before it becomes common knowledge this is out there. :D

Thanks Libor - that looks very nice indeed. I know I shouldn't wish my life away, but I can't wait until September now!

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

After spending most of my youth looking for, but never finding a Frogspawn Whitley, I finally get myself one at a reasonable price and I feel contented that my stash now includes an important type from Bomber Command's inventory. I've looked into what I need to do to make it a little more accurate and planned to build it in the next wee while, and I'm looking forward to the modelling challenge it will no doubt be.

So imagine my dismay upon seeing those pictures of nice clean mouldings, crisp yet restrained ENGRAVED panel lines and transparencies that look like you can actually see through them. No doubt the interior will be a delight to behold too and this kit'll go together in a matter of days and look every inch the perfect Whitley.

Something tells me the Fates are not so much conspiring against me, they are just being downright bloody vindictive! :angry:

Mark.

I got myself a Frog (well Novo really) kit not long ago, as well as resin replacement engines and vacformed transparencies......

Anyway, if anybody fancy a BOAC Whitley, predecessor of the Mosquitos on the Stockholm run, I got a decal sheet ready from the printers today. Unfortunately I have a computer problem that must be solved before I can finish the instruction sheet.
