Matchbox's 1/72 scale
Handley-Page Heyford Mk.II
by Pasi Kiiski
Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Fw 190 A-8 is available online from Squadron
I was inspired by Daniel Bechennec's artwork “Flight of the Dinosaurs” and I checked out HyperScale's galleries to see if I could find a model of the Handle-Page Heyford.
There were no models of this beautiful aircraft and so I picked up my courage and sent these pictures.
I made this model 2009 and it is Revell’s reboxing of Matchbox's old 1/72 kit. It is surprisingly good kit and fun to build. Of course kit is old one, but you need only minor amount of putty and new decals are quite good. I made only little bits of new detail with styrene and iron wire. Rigging has been made with gold-zack elastane line.
This plane was attached to "B" Flight, 7(B) Squadron, RAF, 1935.
The model has been painted mainly with Tamiya acrylics.
