First Impressions of the Airfix Whitley
In three words - Beau ti full. What a kit! No wonder it sells out so quickly. Whilst not yet complete, I've done enough sub assemblies (interiors and major structures) to say: - Without doubt, well up to Airfix's new-tooling standards - Plenty of interior detail, some of which will be next-to-invisible/hidden - but who cares when "we know it's there" - lovely decals, for typical / popular schemes - earth-and-green-over-black camouflage - and all black (stunning) - I'm going to need another two (as I have unused decals already for another scheme). The engineering of the kit, to ensure the correct angles (dihedral/square), and the dry fit of parts, bodes well for a trouble free final assembly. An excellent kit, that should be finished by the end of next week, in fact)once again - and looking forward to the Shackleton... How about a retooled Halifax and Stirling (Mk 3s), Wellington (maybe Warwick(?) and Hampden / Hereford to accompany the magnificent Lancaster and Whitley? And a 1/72 Lincoln would be even better! As you may have gathered, I'm a WW11 bomber buff!!! So Thanks very much, Wonderland, for the prompt delivery! Well packaged, and practically overnight!!!
