Here's a first look at Wingnut Wings' gorgeous new Airco DH.2. It simply begs to be built, and there'll be much more to come once time allows me to get this beauty onto the workbench!

Having just this afternoon collected my Duellist box from Parcelfarce I have to concur with everything you said about the moulding and breakdown of the kit.

Of course my options of what I can do are limited with the duellist kit but that maybe a good thing for me.

I wanted the Fokker, but once the box was opened and my sweaty fingers got to the plastic.. well... nuff said

Excellent review Merlin

Nice review Rowan!

My kit arrived today, and I was struck by how small the DH.2 is compared to other models. Not knowing much about it, I guess I expected the DH.2 to be similar in size to the F2.b I almost thought it was 1/48 scale for a second! However, since it was a fighter, it's size makes sense

Yep indeed, worse getting stung by Parcelforce for the honour of it (Tax is tax, fair enough but being double stung hurts.
