Pretty forlorn hope I know, but such things DO exist.

For the record, the PZL P.24 was the ultimate export version of the P.11c, fitted with a Gnome Rhone engine and an enclosed cockpit. I want to do it as a whiff Spanish Civil War aircraft.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Mine is the Encore kit.  Not too bad.  Could use a little extra detailing.  Keep thinking of using parts from a PZL.11 but only have one of those.

IIRC, Broplan in Poland do a Vacform of the 24.  I know Mirage have one in 1/48th.  I believe HANNANTs may have one or two in stock.

Mirage do various PZL.11s, 23s, 24s and 37s in 1/48th: unfortunatly, that's not my scale (space reasons). However, thanks for prompting me to look: I just found a 1/72nd ZTS P.37 Lós on Hannants (might be awful, but certainly cheap!). The Lós was offered to the Spanish Republicans before it was even announced to the world! No order due to the non-intervention treaty though, still, in What-if World...... :wacko:

It's injection too, not vacform. Trouble is though, it's nearly twenty quid -  :blink:

Broplan must've upgraded to Injected, cos IIRC, the main stuff was Vac, Struts, Engine etc was injected...
But, do you have a Polish contact, or even contact Broplan direct?

On reflection, I suspect it's mis-described on the Aeroclub site: EVERYTHING else I can find by them is vac-form.
