He Eugene

      ! You did a nice job on that. Even in Plastic that thing is UUUGLY! I've been looking. Do you know if anyone does a Mosquito MK-1 in Paper? I think that's one of the most beautiful W.W.2 early twin engined birds out there. Another Plywood wonder!

 Actually, I think the English First and the Russians hold the title for the ugliest planes in the war. The English added another with the Boulton Paul "Defiant"!

Hi Eugene! 

      I have ties to two sites that sell paper models. Neither one so far has seen fit to offer a "Mossie". The Nice part, If I could find one. I still have my molds for the Vac-U-Form, canopies in 1/72 and 1/32 . So, a cockpit would NOT be out of the Question!

Aha!

    You are so right. My Lanc. Is still in the Envelope. It's old-Bought it from P.M.I. in Beaverton, Oregon, before they shut down. More parts than any plastic kit for sure! That's an interesting bird on the wall .Is that the Plastic kit?

Man! Eugene!

     Now that is almost as weird looking as the TreibFlugel! The only Vac Plane I have ever done is a small(1/72 Pembroke) High Winged transport plane, Prop driven and very handsome. never did find it after the 82 Weather debacle. I tried to get another, No such luck!

     Being careful, and considering the medium,"I was very careful". I don't think, except fo paneling that it was much different or difficult to build than any plastic model plane. Familiar with Vac Models from my R.C. Boats it wasn't that hard! I couldn't get photos of a "Pembroke" so she looked llike a promo desk model than an accurate scale model. Oh, Well!

TB, those babies are pricey! Look, there's a price tag on it - back then in 2010 it would set you back 22 zł (that's for Polish Złoty) - about 5$ Smile

If you can get one now, I don't think if would be all that more expensive. If you should have problems finding one (or the 2000 issue), let me know - I'll try to help.

Have a nice day!

Paweł

I made the Modelarz Polish 189 also and it was tricky but very buildable and not too expensive!

Hi Pawel!

    Hey, I went to my current Fenten's Catalogue and couldn't find it! If you found it, how would I get the cash to you and postage? I don't know the rate of exchange, but I don't think a small finder's fee would be out of place either! Would $25.00 U.S. cover everything or would I need more?

    If More, it will be around December before I could do anything!

Who Me?

     You have to be kidding! Between the Build I started and the one I am In, Plus my client's ship I am bored! No Really, Due to various things going on,  I am trying to stay very busy! That way the other things don't have time to pile up and get me upset.

 You know what they say. An idle Mind is the Devil's workshop!
