I picked up their PZL-42* earlier this year. Havn't built it, but it looks gorgeous in the box, with the kind of interior detail you'd expect on a 1/48th jon. :thumbsup:

I have a B version in front of me. The detail of the interior as it is on this scale is impressive and there is nothing to be ashamed of. :thumbsup:

It's also got a bit of a Soviet vibe to it.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

If you believe the rudimentary sources, the inspiration was the Lockheed L-10 Electra <_<

Currently in mid build and it is a superb build. The finesse of the parts can cause you to think a bit about construction, but there's now't wrong with that  :thumbsup:

My Blog on site has some construction pointers.

The PZL 37 arrived today and looks superb

Rudimentary sources? Los development is covered in detail in Jerzy Cynk's Polish Aircraft 1893 -1939.

The only thing it has in common with the Lockheed 10 is twin-engines and twin-tails, the
latter showing up on the earlier, unbuilt PZL.3 four-engine bomber design of the late'20s.

The PZL.37 design was an extension of the structural and aerodynamic design used on the
PZL.23. Design of both the Los and the Tupolev SB-2 began in 1934, the Los was the better
aircraft, it also predates the DB-7B/Havoc/A-20 by a few years.

They'll need a completely different fuselage to do an A, there are also
differences in the wing center section, that of the C being thinner with
greater dihedral and a larger cutout, all mods made to improve view
from the cockpit. The C fuselage is closer to that of the P.24, they
were developed concurrently and shared many features.
