  1. Allan, isn't she a quirky looking little plane? The two seater looks even more bizarre! (I'm gonna get me one of those!) Avia obscuris!

  2. Nice build, Allan.

  3. An odd little plane for sure, but I think they look quite good once they're cleaned up and in the air! What surprised me is even with the short span the wings still fold! Just wondering what color you chose for the blue. I chose Blue Angel blue with medium green for the underside. I wish they would have given us the option of an early scheme as well. Thanks for bringing us some nice out of the ordinary!

  4. Very nice! I've got a set of decals/stencils to build one of these, and it's high on the priority list - such an eccentric-looking bird.

  5. Great build, don't see one too often.

  6. Indeed a very well done build! Like this plane, seldom seen as a model!
