I got my Heyford last week finally, and also have scored some decent references (including a pair of cutaway drawings), so I'll be starting it soon.

Just to whet your appetites for this one, I put an intro page up on my blog and did a quickie review of it. It may not be up to the standards of a modern Hasegawa, but compared to the class of 1979 this thing was a heck of a kit for its day.

Hi Hans,

Nice choice, finished one about 18 months ago OOB apart from the rigging. Be warned the strut that comes from the engine nacelle to the wheel spat comes up short.

PS. Excuse the clutter behind.







Have fun Paul

get on with but want to do it in the training colours of green/brown over yellow with big roundels and serials all over but I have lost my photo reference - any help would be appreciated. Apparently about 6 made it to 1941 as training a/c and appeared in this scheme - YUMMY!!.

...on that engine-to-nacelle strut shortfall, Paul. Nice job there - the decals look especially well done and if they're the kit decals well then, EXTRA kudos!
