Roden has issued their 1/48 Staggerwing in civillian colours. Jessica Cooper, Aeroscale''s resident civillian flying mistress, takes a look at the kit. Modellers who have built either of the two military versions will find that much is familiar.

A Fine review! It really gives us the broad look at the kit and the color schemes.
