    Also the re-boxed kit is offered by Bilek with no.917 kit. It is quite a basic model. Are you going to add a few details more?

    Heck, I haven't seen that kit since the mid 1960s! Should turn out to be a nice model with some added details.

    WOW ! Talk about bringing back memories. I built that very same kit in the early 70s. Always thought the Whirlwind was a dam hot looking aircraft. I still have it too.

    I'm half Irish half Scot. One half of me want's to get drunk. The other half doesn't want to pay for it.

    I also always thought it was a great looking airplane. I have a Classic Airframes 1/48 Whrilwind in my stash. I have not even opened the parts bag.

    Good start!

    Nice work Busted! Certainly the Whirlwind is a good looking plane.

    Not much detail for sure. If I remember right I picked my Whirlwind up at a toy store in Brussels along with a Boulton Paul Defiant back in the early 70's, back then they were on cardboard with a blister pack over them, no box. My uncle Ian who was an RAF Wing Commander was stationed there with NATO at the time.
