NEW!!! "Retrowings" A4-D1 / A4/a Skyhawk at 1/144th scale
« on: April 09, 2011, 03:43:23 PM »
So, here is it: the first "full aircraft" from Retrowings!

The kit has 27 parts, two of them being clear ones (canopy).

The fuselage is in one element, as are the wings. All the elements are finely engraved. At that scale, the seat is particularily finely detailed with the seatbelts.

There is a decal sheet for an aircraft of the VA-12.

I must say I have no negative criticism against the kit; all is absolutely perfect and it will be a dream to build it.

There is no instruction sheet, just a color view of the aircraft; but all is self-explanatory and there will be no difficulty to obtain a nice jewel...

Of course, it's one of my next build...

It does look very good, indeed. I especially like the detail on the nose gear--that isn't always so nice on larger scale Scooters.

it looks way better than many 1:72 or 1:48 kits.I can't wait to see this one finished.
