This model is a first for me,I usually shy away from pre Second World War aircraft but my troubles with clear parts as well as limited time to model has led me to this type.I enjoyed it immensely.Just need to get rid of my stash and get more of these little gems.As my usual all paints by brush and the first of my stands that I received from the good gentlemen from this parish.

It's the old Heller kit. SMER repops a lot of older kits from different makers.

How nice to see an interwar aircraft and not a well known one either. That has been very well built and painted, (says he who also only uses a hairy stick).

Nice one, Celt, this is a great looking build of a subject outside of the norm.
