Ooooh dont even go there Jugs...
I have wanted to build one of these since they first came out but they scare me shitless...

Id love to have a go at one, but im afraid of buying a $80 kit and making a right royal knob of it.
Apparently the Fokker DVII is a good one to start with, because it has minimal rigging.
But Im game if you are....
(they have free delivery).

Are they available from anywhere in SA?

Steve

I think you would need to order it Steve, i sure don't know of anyone locally stocking them. They are very tempting but i must admit for around R1000 all up, i would rather get myself a couple sets of Fruils.

Yeah well that is the problem isnt it, they are a bit pricey...

Anyone going anywhere near NZ in the forseeable future?

I'm tempted to do the 1:48 DH2 by Eduard.

I think I'll sneek that into my Xmas sock along with the 1:48 Super Valkyrie by Hasegawa.

Uh Huh...
Firstly, it has wings, too many wings, and secondly, those kits scare me.
But i'd still love to build one Smile

Hmmm... scratch

That is almost interesting enough for me to re-think my "WWII ONLY" outlook.

Ken, you'll be pleasantly surprised to know that the rigging is apparantly all PE. Shocked
I'll post pics of the sprues this weekend.

Eduard also do one of the Albatros D.III amongst others in the same line (profilpack). Probably the DH.2, Albatros, Sopwith Camel & Spad are my faves. I love you

Well, I may have over stated the PE rigging, but it is still an impressive kit for its size. Cool

Have a squizz!!







All of that in a 1/48 WWI biplane!! affraid
