Airco DH.9 Spanish Civil War 1:72
As a modeller of aircraft from Spanish Civil War, I sometimes have a take some unusual steps in getting the model that I want. The plane on its nose was the inspiration for this one.
For this Spanish Airco DH.9 I used a vacuform fuselage from Classic Plane and and gave it a complete nose job because of the Hispano-Suiza engine the original had. This was combined with the wings and tail planes from the Airfix DH.4, with a white metal propeller and radiator from a Blue Rider conversion kit. The crow and number on the tail were custom printed, the roundels came from an Azur Loire 46.
Hope you like it.
