Blue Max movie, 'experimental' plane (re-picture)

Postby Morris » Sat Jan 27, 2018 1:12 pm

Just watched the Blue Max ('.....again.....' - SWMBO) - I never have worked well in 1/72nd scale - I can't see and I can't handle tiny parts without the carpet monster gobbling them up.....but since this is the only kit available of the French MS230 used to replicate a German experimental plane in the movie, figured I'd have a go....

Great film , been thinking of Revell 1/28 Sopworth Camel myself, not a fan of 72nd myself but Air fix doing some good ones now and like you say if it's the only one ,you got to go that way.

Yeah, 1/72 is a bit too small for me. Anyway, as with the movie plane, I made a cover for the front cockpit - didn't take any pics of the interior - not enough detail to see and it's only the size of a garden pea...
