I got these two at Newark last year, or should I say four, as you get two kits per box. I'm going to do a little dogfight diorama with them. One kit of each that is.

They look like nice kits Ian. A WW1 dogfight sounds like fun... except for the rigging! ;)

1:44 bi planes - he's had too much sun.
I would tend to agree with you Colin but we live in Britain there's no sun here.

Watching :smiling3:


It's a brave man Ian who takes these on at 1/144.


It's great that there are two kits per box as you can happily throw the first one at the wall when all that rigging becomes to much happily knowing there's another 1 in the box for a second attempt;)


Good luck cheers John

With the thick coats they wore and the helmets, just model a couple of Michelin Men out of blue tack and paint them. No one would know at that scale.  B|

nice progress Ian , i never thought about the pilots though. Maybe Brengun do some , i know they do a lot of pe for 1/144 stuff, failing that how about these  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5157-Modelscene-N-Gauge-Assorted-Unpainted-Figures-set-B-Pack-of-20-/251741224981?hash=item3a9cf24015:g:8o8AAOSwj0NUfen0


theyre N gauge figures for railways but they scale out to about 1/148 which is near enough , theres a couple in sitting positions too , hope this helps cheers tony
Thanks for the link Tony
