Posted as a news story on the day of the unveiling, here .
Stunning kit, but not as stunning as the Lancaster sitting next too it though .

I think they're BOTH pretty stunning, at the very least! But that HP is frankly terrifying to comprehend. Bloody Paralyser indeed!

Hi there

I wonder why it's displayed with both cowlings closed since we first saw it. The port engine looked a gem in the Telford shots.

@ Michael - That's why my wallet's in hiding in fear somewhere when it comes to these two! I'm promising myself a Wingnuts kit as a reward when I finish my book builds, but I think it's more likely to be the Junkers D.1 or Sopwith Dophin.

All the best

Rowan,
The Dolphin is fabulous-- I think much better than the Junkers, but I'm way partial to the Dolphin,it being one of my favorites--so I highly recommend it. I grabbed one when they first came out. I doubt I'll have room for the Bloody Paralyzer AND a Lancaster B Mk III, or the financing for both-- I'll have to take a second mortgage, but I think I'll have a go at the Lanc, also one of my favorites. That will be my only model buy for the entire year though, as it will exhaust my space and budget!
VR, Russ

What a big beast!

How do you put such a plane in a showcase?

Well i got one wish that came true, i said a few years back i wanted them to do an 0/400, now going to have to save my pennies, as i think i am looking at around £250 for this kit?

With the folded wings–option I'm fairly tempted as well. £250 sounds about right (I hope).

Cheers

to trim the HP 400 I think 1/132 rigging WITH turn buckles will be required. ... or some scale wooden horses for those wing tips, folded or not.

Now fro the 32d ground crew and air crew (maybe like the Airfix multi-pose style. Hint Hint)
