This is one of the worst model kits i ever bought. It's actually a shame that it's still sold.

Gordon Sørensen I whole-heartedly agree. I spent a lot of time (and putty!) trying to get a good result...

David Thor Yeah, you actually need more putty than they sell you plastik in that kit. :)
12. August 2019, 09:46
Derek Huggett Hey guys, the original tooling is over 60 years old - what did you expect? :)
12. August 2019, 10:47
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...
12. August 2019, 15:58
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.

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!
8. September 2014, 15:59
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.
