After the release of a 1/48 scale Halifax kit, the French short run kit manufacturer Fonderie Miniature adds another big aircraft to its catalogue: the Dornier Do 24 T. This is sure something for those who have a lot of display space!

P.S. By the way, this is what I saw on the side of the box

Hi Jean-Luc

Great review! It looks like the quality of FM's Dornier is broadly on a par with the earlier Halifax - maybe a step back in a couple of places. Either way, both kits will take a lot of building - but that's part of the fun and challenge! The results should be spectacular and I'm really seeing how good the Dornier looks when you tackle it.

Hmmm - a Henschel Hs 126! While space-restrictions mean I won't be buying the Dornier anytime soon, I may well be tempted by a kit of one of my most asked for subjects when it comes out!

All the best


P.S. All being well, I might be able to make a tentatiive start on the Halifax this weekend - we'll see...
