1/72 A.W. Whitley Mk. V
February 18, 2016 in Aviation
This is the new Airfix kit built almost from the box. I only added a bit of internal structure inside the fuselage behind the open door. It was finished with Humbrol enamels and kit decals. I have a weakness for 1/72 RAF bombers and this kit certainly didn’t disappoint. It includes a truly comprehensive internal structure that features detail that rivals most 1/48 kits. The kit is engineered in a very unique manner , building out from a central core based on the bomb bays and lower center section. The fuselage is not your standard left and right halves. It is a sort of jig saw puzzle of parts that all come together flawlessly. A real stand out kit in 1/72, and lots of fun. I can’t wait for the ASW Mk.VII later this year!
