Stunning kit, but not as stunning as the Lancaster sitting next too it though .

I think they're BOTH pretty stunning, at the very least! But that HP is frankly terrifying to comprehend. Bloody Paralyser indeed!

Hi there

I wonder why it's displayed with both cowlings closed since we first saw it. The port engine looked a gem in the Telford shots.

@ Michael - That's why my wallet's in hiding in fear somewhere when it comes to these two! I'm promising myself a Wingnuts kit as a reward when I finish my book builds, but I think it's more likely to be the Junkers D.1 or Sopwith Dophin.

All the best

Rowan,
The Dolphin is fabulous-- I think much better than the Junkers, but I'm way partial to the Dolphin,it being one of my favorites--so I highly recommend it. I grabbed one when they first came out. I doubt I'll have room for the Bloody Paralyzer AND a Lancaster B Mk III, or the financing for both-- I'll have to take a second mortgage, but I think I'll have a go at the Lanc, also one of my favorites. That will be my only model buy for the entire year though, as it will exhaust my space and budget!
VR, Russ

What a big beast!

How do you put such a plane in a showcase?

With the folded wings–option I'm fairly tempted as well. £250 sounds about right (I hope).

Cheers
