TVAL RE8
« on: May 06, 2012, 09:19:45 PM »
Here are a few detail shots I took of the RE8 at the ANZAC day airshow. I wish I had taken more!

Hopefully they will be useful to someone.

Cylinder shrouds

Thanks for those Tony, they should come in handy for when I buy one of these kits.

Magnificent Detail Shots! Thanks , They will be very useful for my Wingnuts build. Harry Tate is my favourite WW1 subject and my spirits were as high as a barrage balloon when I heard the kit was being released. Now I just gotta hunker down and get it done! Thanks for the inspiration!

I am fairly sure that the seatbelts and attachments are more modern versions, not prototypical of WWI, but everthing else is.

Thanks Tony and Jamo for posting the photos of the RE.8. These will be extremely useful for anyone building a model of the RE.8 with all of these photos showing fantastic detail.
