Model Expo's "Model Airways" kits
Posted by weebles on Tuesday, January 28, 2003 10:32 PM
While checking on something for this forum I went to the Model Expo web site. They produce a line of museum quality kits consisting of World War I era aircraft. They are releasing a 1/16 scale Curtis JN-4D Jenny. My initial reaction was "I have to build this kit!!!!" But I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this line of kits and has any thoughts about them. It looks beautiful! Big Smile [:D]

I have almost completed their Albatros D.Va. I put it aside about a year ago and haven't gathered the energy to finish it. Briefly, the kit is crude, the laser-cut parts aren't very crisp and the white metal parts appear as if the molds are wearing out and getting sloppy. I wouldn't attempt another of their "museum quality" kits.

That's good enough for me! I'd hate to drop $300 on something I would be disapointed with. Thanks/Dave
