    Just starting this one, doing my RAAF version at the same time, the kit has decals for this but I need to scratch build a copy of the resin rudder from the CFS build, ——- a little interior green paint on both !!

    Allan, not one, but two! Neat little airplane, I see belatedly it looks like a Tiger Moth, without the top wing! I have the old Frog kit someplace. Trainers are an interest of mine. Glad to see RS decided to do some. Be nice to have a new Proctor, for instance, or an Ox Box.

    That is one neat little airplane model….I want one! Look forward to seeing this finished. I dont think I ever saw this plane before.

    Thanks, Allan! Be a nice addition to my station flight.

  • Paul Barber said 5 months, 2 weeks ago:

    It is such a delicate looking plane, Allan. Desperate times need desperate measures as the saying goes, but the idea of this being lined up as a bomber in the face of an invasion just seems hard to believe. Still, we also had the home guard and schemes for recycling metal railings for munitions. Great choice – and good to see the Aussie version going together in tandem!

    Looks like a fun kit to build! I look forward to it. You doing that red/yellow scheme or the camo top?

  • Allan J Withers said 5 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Thanks Paul, ———–

    A little more done, instrument panels in, seats on the wing and I don’t know where I got the miss information on the rudder for the RAAF version but it’s as per the three view and kit !!!

    You have made some good progress Allan. When I look at the side view illustration, I can see a similar plane, the Ryan PT-22. At certain angles I see the Fairchild PT-19 as well. I’ll bet in 1/72 size it’s tiny.

    This is a great little plane…………… 🙂

  • Allan J Withers said 2 months ago:

    Thanks Louis, they are similar, here’s a pic with a 6″ rule for comparison !!

    Wheel spats together, with the nose for A15, wing lower half on and upper halves waiting to join their mates !!
