Strangely mate you started the original thread back in 2011  ;D

I'll look at merging it, when I remember how.

I remembered   :thumbsup:
Cheers Chris,
I was running on an empty battery so didn't have time to look, and yes, very Bedford looking it is too. The pointy bit is straight of the Tunguska , which I have done one of the military wheels kits of in 72nd scale.

This has twigged a memory of building a Flycatcher when I was a younger teen. Was it Impact or Pyro who had a range of 1/48 bi-planes ?

Both them, they were the same moulds passed across. I think a couple of Airfix's early 1/48 biplanes came from the same source too.

The original Impact kits were very comprehensive, even to supplying the rigging thread 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

One does have to wonder how much better it is than the old Inpact/Pyro/Lifelike/Lindbergh
kit which can be found pretty easily for a lot less than $45USD.

Here's the Inpact etc. kit on Scalemates, with timeline.

I've a memory of one kit or another coming with a small "reel" of thread for the rigging but can't remember what it was  :unsure:

Cheers gents  :thumbsup:
