1/72 Baynes Bat
Posted by jeaton01 on Sunday, April 19, 2009 10:38 PM

This is from a company called JACH, from Poland, I think.  This one built up pretty nicely. has an injected canopy and some PE parts, not all of which were used.  The tow ring and two pitot tubes were used.  It has about a 7 inch span, not so large, and they forgot the tail.  It was a British prototype proof of concept, which was to lead to a tank carrying glider, but the Hamilcar and others did that job.  Of course, the wife labels it "cute", but then so do I.

Yup, that looks like it falls into the 'cute' catagory. Nice job on an esoteric subject.

You need a "bat swatter", Harv, not a fly swatter!  Borg, the fit was pretty good, I am left wondering if it is not from Airfix or Frog molds, except that the surface detail is recessed.  It was a simple and fun build, just taking a bit more time because of a fairly complex paint scheme.
