1/72 Airfix Henschel Hs 123A-1
« on: October 04, 2021, 12:37:01 AM »
Dear all,

Just finished the old Airfix Henschel 123 biplane which is part of Airfix's 'Vintage Classics' range of re-released kits.   I fondly remember this kit from when I was a kid in the  1970's.  I therefore could not resist having a good at this one.

Built mostly OOB with some minor (including a basic cockpit) mods made.   

Great little fun, simple project.















Regards

Dave

That is first class Dave. Good to see one in pre-WW2 markings too. A very nice little kit, very well made.

Lovely job on that model, Dave. I too have very fond memories of building that kit when it first came out. The artwork for the model still is one of my favourites  :)
Cheers,
Gary

Thank you, Gary -

Yes, I also fondly remember the artwork for this kit back in the day - one of the reasons I picked this re-issue up went I saw it.
