I hope the side door opens or you won't be able to see any of it. Even then it'd be difficult.
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! :)

You get separate side doors but I think you have to drill and cut out the fuselage halves to add them opened.

1/72 Special Hobby CAC CA9 Wirraway.  Probably to be as close to RW as I ever get.


Having seen Tony o'Toole's build over on Britmodeller, it's one I'm now considering.

Wingnut Wings 1/32 Sopwith Pup "RFC". A friend asked for my address the other day and I found this on my doorstep today at lunchtime, complete with a very heartwarming letter. I'm afraid I came over all emotional.

I can't comment on accuracy but in terms of model kit engineering it looks pretty good.  I read a review stating that they downsized their 1/48 version and I can believe it.

I've heard comment from somewhere that the windscreen is wrong, but I'm still quite tempted.  Desert scheme?

An RAAF special attack force, operating clandestinely from the Gobi desert* perhaps,& hell-bent on punishing the forces of Nippon from behind?

* Or if that's a bit too fanciful, then a what if - where they share the 'Shangri La' airbase with the USAAF & ROC forces..

"Indeed! What those Tojo Johnnies really need to remind them who is boss - is a damn good flogging..
After all, we RAAF type Brylcream boys who attended Scotch College et al - well know there is true satisfaction to be had in that..
& likely those slightly built Asiatic coolies'll soon fold up, under the onslaught of a decent Aussie 1st XV-style buggering..
Have at them, chaps! Tally ho!"
