Instructions

Construction

With this model, the horse is literally bridled from behind. Instead of the wings, let’s start with the tail here. Then we work our way to the front fuselage and only after that do we build the wings. The back area is covered with large, printed moldings that ensure a perfect shape. On the whole, however, the structure is nothing special and is similar to most other aircraft models from WWII.

The chassis is very special compared to other models and cannot be lowered. Finally, only the propeller is attached and the obligatory base is built.

Conclusion:

If you are still looking for a nice carrier aircraft, you can strike here. The model is solid and very stable. However, you will look in vain for special features or special building techniques.
