Show us your - DH.9a 'Ninak'

I left the engine exposed in this model, so it meant modifying the front end of the plane, full details in my build log. This is another spectacular kit produced by Wingnuts.

So glad you brought this beauty back out, Des.  I love how you depicted the engine and the prop boss.  Truly brilliant model all around.
Cheers,
Bud

  Des,
The only thing missing is the USMC markings but other than that she's absolutely stunning. Outstanding my old friend.

That's inspirational. I have this kit to do and have bookmarked both of your build threads for reference.

Here is my NINAK.  I built it about 2 years ago.  I really enjoyed this build, it presented no major obstacles or hurdles, just a fun straightforward build.  It has been posted elsewhere but not here.
Enjoy.




I built it OOB using Tamiya paints and mixes per the WNW instructions.  Naturally, I had to do the USMC version!  8)

Mark,
   Looks even better then I recall on Aeroscale; this is my favorite of all your published Builds. Thanks for adding it for all to enjoy.
Cheers,
Lance

Both are very nice builds with great attention to detail. Makes me want to pull mine out of the stash!

Cheers,
