Injection moulded Curtiss C-46 in 1/72nd scale:

Given the size of the thing, that doesn't seem unreasonable at 28.

Injection moulded Curtiss C-46 in 1/72nd scale:

That's the original Williams Bros. kit of the mid '70s IIRC. It's pretty good, I have one, but investing in the Falcon vacform windscreen set would be a good move as the glass area is enormous and really demands a good cockpit job done on it.

In passing I went aboard one, 'China Doll' herself, some years back and the cockpit really is huge, you sit in the Captain's seat and the window sill is below your knees, and it's about a foot away from you as well.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

I can't tell you how delighted I was when I Googled 'S&M Models' and got the company website as opposed to any other ahem specialised interest groups.  They need a bit of work on their website if it is to come up to the standard of their resin though...

They all look very happy to be working there though! And young, and smartly dressed! ;D

Back in the late 1990s I was working at a University providing IT support.  One of the lecturers had resisted being given a new PC for a couple of years on the basis that he was soon to retire.  Finally we put our foot down and forced him to accept a brand new PC with Win98.  He then came to me and asked me how he could search the web for information about his favourite Unix word processing program called "LATex" (pronounced "LA-Tex" not "latex").   I said, just type it into the navigation bar at the top of the screen in (those days) Mozilla.  So, off he went, happy as Larry.  A hour or so he came back, rather dismayed.  He'd typed "latex" and been surprised at some of the websites he'd been directed to!  ;D ;D ;D

Yup it's a strange name to choose that's for sure  :blink: Have to agree re the website as well. The kits are fantastic but as you say, the website lacks a touch
