David Thor Yeah, you actually need more putty than they sell you plastik in that kit.

Derek Huggett Hey guys, the original tooling is over 60 years old - what did you expect?

David Thor Sadly, thats not written on the Boxes from 5 years ago. Heller at least prints museum kit on theirs from that age. I think Airfix isnt doing anything good to the hobby, when they sell this at the price of a decent kit to people that are new to the hobby and dont research the age of the kit before.

Gordon Sørensen I haven't seen the new boxings for Airfix's ' Vintage Series' yet, but this kit definately qualifies...

Cuajete I have the unfinished model. A lot of scratch and putty. But I think the worst is the cockpit. Canopy not have uprights.
It is best to run away from this kit and purchase the one from KP or SBS.
P J Good to see the Grosvenor House plane back on the shelves but this kit desperately needs a new tool. Takes a lot of filler and patience to make a good looking model. Old Frog/Novo versions a better bet for a decent build.
Gordon Sørensen Nice to see the real one has flown again. I totally agree about the quality of the kit, very basic, lots of flash, but a beautiful aircraft!

P J Absolutely! I'm sorry I missed it fly yesterday but I'll see it soon.
I'd like to hunt down one of those Aerotech 1:32 models of the DH.88.
