Westland Wyvern in 1/48 scale from Trumpeter.
February 11, 2013 in Aviation
Trumpeter have really done us proud. Not only do they issue well engineered (mostly) kits, but they produce models you are unlikely to see from other manufacturers for anything like the price. My Wyvern was built out-of-the-box with only one exception. I installed a brass tube wing spar as I wanted to have wings spread but not have to worry about them breaking at the fold line when picked up. In fact, the wings just slide on – there is no glue at the wing fold!
I’ve kept it nice & clean with minimal weathering as befits a ‘pre – Suez’ machine.
Hope you like it.
