This -9 version is really not as nice as the -7, especially the cockpit.

That is good to know, as I do beleive I have a -7 kit, as well as one or two others, off the top of my head though I do not remember which Mks. they are though.

Market / Seeking a VAMIModels kit....
« on: October 14, 2012, 04:34:06 AM »
I am desperately looking for a Vami Models kit, in particular the Levesseur Oiseau Blanc kit if anyone has one to spare, or knows where there is one. This is for a museum display at Owl's Head Transportation Museum up in Maine. Over the years there have been many rumors that the aircraft crashed somewhere in the Maine woods after crossing the Atlantic. In fact the Maine Avation Historical Society has mounted several searches over the years for the remains of the plane. The model club I belong to puts on a display a couple of times a year at the Museum and it was decided if we could find a kit it would make a nice display piece for them.

Nice progress Scott! I admire your ability to "see" the shapes you need in ordinary parts. Your scratch building is top notch as well, but I am still amazed at how you can take various kit parts and turn them into a compleately different item.  :-obey :-obey

Well, since fall is in the air here in New England, and the wood is all stacked, it is time to get back to building as much as possible :)) :-ok :-clap :-clap :-tri
I want to try to build a bunch of kits from different companies this winter, and so I thought I would start with this one. This, to me, is one sleek looking little plane, and also one of Airfixes' harder to find kits (which makes building it much more fun). The Begeal Basset was used a communications aircraft and ferry aircraft for V bomber crews. The kit itself was issued about 1968, and was avaliable from Airfix and MPC in the U.S. until about 1972. It was reissued one time in 1980 and that is it. Alot of kits in Airfix's catalog have been avaliable pretty regularly, but not this one.

I intend to do a ferry aircraft, though the decals in the kit I  have might not be any good, so I will most likely have to paint the lightning bolt along the fuselage side, but I'll worry about that when I get there.
