Speaking of the old ones…Aurora Breguet….
September 17, 2013 in Aviation
Back in the day (again?) Aurora’s WW1 jobs were some of the better models out there. They were outstanding compared to say, the burgundy Messerchmitt or yellow Zero. I built almost all of them back then, and have a pile today, for nostalgia. My favorite is the Sopwith Triplane,what a box art. But they were all good weren’t they?
Got this one, in a bag, for 5 bucks at a show, and decided to build it right out of the box (bag), just what they gave you, Even stayed “in the lines” of the old raised roundel areas. Here she is with her original groundcrew and grassy base. Note the ejector pin mark on one guy’s back. And the fuselage decal, the cock, is original. Contact!
