Eetu Tahvonen (Emeritus) has written a great article on how he tackled Trumpeter''s 1/72 scale Westland Wyvern. A plane after my own heart, as I used to work for Westlands when I was a teenager... but I digress! Enjoy!

Nice artical Eetu, makes me want one in my collection. I would have to go the 1/48 route though and although outside my sphere of real interest it does look pretty cool and would look good next to my Skyraider
Thanks, more please

Hi Eetu!

Well done article! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Like Mal, the Wyvern is not in my "timezone", but after seeing your feature I'm tempted to give it a try... in 1/48 scale though. After all I have a F4U-7 in Suez Markings in my collection, so why not a Wyvern!

Thanks again Eetu for the feature and Rowan for the editing work...

my first thought on seeing that article was "i want one!" it looks as if i wasnt the only one to think that either, wyvern campaign anyone?
