So far, no huge surprises but you can tell it's an earlier (but still nice and delicate!) molding compared the the ol' Felixstowe. We'll see how it comes together. I just got a little start last night.




You know...other than being a different consistency plastic and not needing to prep parts, it's very much like the recent vacs I've completed...

More soon (and I'll finish the Fokker TV too).

And I still haven't build one

You've done already a nice "little start" Dan, only an upper wing and some paint and rigging needed !

I've had a warm spot in my heart for the Gotha ever since my big translucent red Aurora kit of so many years ago. 8-year-olds charge in where old men fear to tread. I'll enjoy yours vicariously.

You do not fear these WWI mammooths, don't you? the next one should be a Caproni bomber, on which many American airmen were trained by Italian instructors (things may change in 100 years, huh?) here at Foggia airbase.
Meanwhile, I will follow this gotha with beer and pizza at hand.

Hi Massimo,

I love that plane and it would go so well with my growing WWI Bomber/large plane collection...Handley Page, Gotha, Felixstowe, Staaken, AEG...a Caproni would be so sweet. I even have an old "Over the Front" magazine that features it.

I might have to scratch that one now that the challenge has been issued by a respected Italian!

Thanks for looking.
