Eduard 1/48 Roland C.II
March 20, 2013 in Aviation
This is the weekend edition of the kit and was built entirely OOB. This was my first attempt at a WW1 subject and it gave me the opportunity to try out a number of new (for me) modelling techniques. The kit goes together fairly well, tricky areas being the location of the undercarriage struts which need to be a bit more positive and the lower wing to fuselage join which is clumsy. The instructions are vague with regard to the rigging attachment points but I was greatly helped by the Windsock datafile on the subject. While I won’t be rushing to do another bi-plane, I enjoyed the build and am pleased with how it turned out.
