The lack of a reliable synchronized gun gear in 1915 was the main reason that the Royal Flying Corps considered pusher type aircraft were for military operations. . . The100 hp “Gnome” Monosoupape (mono-soo-pop) powered, single seat scout named the DH 2 was the brain child of the Aircraft Manufacturing Company’s Mr. Geoffrey de Havilland. . . Now Roden brings us another 1/32 jewel.

I really liked the review, particularly the 'manufacture' section. As I leered at it with my one good, unclouded eye, and rubbed the hump on my back, I smiled, and thought,"very good, Master."

The good news from Santa's workshop is that I will have the Eduard DH 2 to review and augment this build!

The DH-2 in the stash will be happy about this one . I already pre-order this one at the LHS .
Seat doesn't look to bad , but I will try and weave my own . I'm curious to see how they did the pulleys . Is it the same as their DH-2 profipack ....guess I have to wait for the review .

Looking for forward to the review Stephen !
