Hi Rowan!

This is a nice review of a nice plane!
It wasn't on my list but I must get those Sake bottles! :-) Any idea of what will be included in the second reference you mentionned?

Hi Jean-Luc

I reckon they were thinking of your dioramas when they designed this :



All the best

Hi Rowan!

And if they could also add the vehicle that is visible in the background...

It's funny because it seems I have a reputation of diorama maker But so far I only made some small bases and built one vehicle! :-) In fact I'm accumulating objects and figures for aircraft dioramas but in reality I didn't built a single one! :-)

Hi Jean-Luc

My bad! I should have written "I reckon they were thinking of the dioramas that I'm sure you'll build one day when they designed this "! :-)

All the best

An interesting choice for FineMolds, hopefully this means that they will refocus on military subjects (sorry,.... the Millenium Falcon might be in 72nd scale, but just doesn't look proper next to my Lancaster!) I will gladly pick up one of these biplanes, and will go your route, through HLJ, as my local hobby stores charge double if not triple the price.

thanks Rowan, for a great review...
