Russian thing

I think this might have been German originally, but we needed a Russian one for a game we were playing, and so it became.

Suitably rough one might suggest?

Might get some more authentic decals for it at some stage down the track but for now it does just fine.


  1. Hardly my specialised subject, but I think it may be an Avro 504. I rather like the markings - I beleive some '504s were supplied to Russia, so your model may be more accurate than you thought!

  2. Nice work Al, I can almost feel the wind blowing through the crews hair.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Hi Al,

    Umm, not to burst your bubble or anything, but it's actually an Avro 504, possibly Airfix. I used to have one carefully painted up in NZPAF colours, as based at Wigram c. 1928. But then it got put away somewhere, the landing gear got broken, the top wing fell off, you know, the usual stuff!



  4. Cool, was thinking someone would know what it was, what is it they say about ignorance being bliss?

    Thanks again boys
