Clear Prop Models DH.9a Early
« on: August 31, 2022, 01:19:25 AM »
Clear Prop Models has posted images of the sprues, p/e, decals, etc. of their 1/72nd scale DH.9A on the Facing Book. It looks beautiful, especially the fabric wrinkling on the fuselage:

It certainly looks very pretty.



The RAAF flew DH9A's post war, so i'll be getting myself at least one :)

More sprue pictures for those not on the face book -

Just poured over my CMR DH9A and clear prop seems to have eclipsed the excellent CMR kit.Certain areas the CMR has crisper detail around the exhaust manifold,but Clear prop wins in my humble opinion and I hope that they produce more WW1 kits as well as the excellent Arma Models,one can hope!

My thoughts too. I'm not even a fan of this a/c, but the moldings look so nice, that I'm almost tempted.

Clear prop make excellent kits, this will be a contender for the best Great war type in 1/72. I hope they’ll be able to get it out soon, in a situation like this.
