AZmodel 1/72 DHC-1 Chipmunk T.10 – WP860 – No. 12 AEF Turnhouse

Hi There.
One of the reasons I got back into modelling was to build some or all of the aircraft that I was lucky enough to fly in during my time in the Air Cadets.

So, here is my first flight and one of the planes that I learned to fly in. WP860 from RAF Turnhouse. We flew from there during a summer camp but my first time was from Lossie when they came up on a gorgeous sunny Sunday afternoon.

This was a nice little kit and any errors and omissions are my fault entirely. My canopy masking wasn’t the best I have done but i’m chuffed to bits with the finished kit and this one is personal and means quite a bit to me.

Painted with,
Mr. Finishing Surfacer White,
Humbrol Arrow Red,
Colourcoats Light Aircraft Grey
and finished with Windsor & Newton Galeria Satin Varnish
As always thanks for looking and any and all criticism and comments are welcome.

  1. That’s a lovely little Chipmunk, Alistair.
    AZmodel kits are not the easiest around and you did a splendid work on it!

  2. Beautiful build, Alistair.
    You must have great eyes to build this tiny model with such accuracy.

  3. Good looking little build! Stands out in that trainer scheme.

  4. Nicely done Alistair, looks good, another on the to do list !!
