Any 1/72 Airco DH.2 drawings?
« on: May 04, 2022, 12:11:33 PM »
Hi team,
Some years back I was given a Revell 1/72 DH.2 kit as a birthday gift but building - let alone rigging - such a little beast was beyond my skills at the time and eventually it was parted-out. I've managed to find everything except one control horn, the horizontal tail and the decals - I chopped up the booms for other purposes long ago and Revell sadly has no spares stock for this kit.

Does anyone have a 1/72 drawing of the DH.2 I can use to build new tailbooms? I'd be extremely grateful to hear from you!

Hi Zac,
Would the Wingnut Wings instructions be of any value ????

Thanks Brian, I downloaded those and they are an excellent reference but fortunately the drawing Dave W posted fit the bill perfectly!
