Obligatory box shots:












haven't decided what markings to use, but it will be 99.9% OOB.

I am very glad to see you are starting on this brilliant kit Bo! Although I lack your skill level I am sure it will help me tackle my kit when the time comes.

Looking forward to this for sure! Thought about getting one myself but that is being way ahead of myself and my skills. Will be watching impatiently...

Cheers

I have to say the content of the box is pretty impressive, Aviattic obviously did a very solid job on this.

Will be following with great interest.

I wouldn't hesitate too long Alistair This is a limited production kit  8) I went for it even though it could be a step or two above the level I build at  :D
Like I said I plan to pay close attention to your build Bo!

Bo, so glad you're posting your build of this! I ordered mine at the very first but have opted to receive mine when it is totally completed (February, I hope)! I'll be paying close attention to your "tutorial"!

99.9 % out of the box? My money is on the 0.1 %  :P

I had ordered the Polish version as well as ordered the datafile. I had  bought a couple of books on the Russo Polish war, so come February or later will have a bit of theme. I washed the sprues for the Late Snipe and will do them in Russian colours, but unsure if it had ever  been used in that war or perhaps was just a captured plane either from that war or from the  British intervention in Russia. Some research to do.

nope, seriously -- most of the kooky stuff I'd normally do, Ron has already done for us ;)

The cowling panels are admirably thin castings, but I might, maybe be tempted to make them out sheet metal anyway, just cuz that's my thing...

will be starting in on the engine today.
