Response to R.E. 8, with some corrections.... (W.I.P.)

absolutely hating this kit when I built it way back in the 70s. All those struts never stayed glued in the right place. It was never finished and binned! The Roland that came in the dogfight double was an absolute delight and a cool plane to boot.

The RE8 certainly ended any desires of building biplanes at least until Matchbox came along with the PE12 and the Fury and their idiot proof struts.

I certainly look forward to more of this WIP!!

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
