Never thought I'd ever get one of these!

The venerable Arirfix Handley Page 0400


This was obtained for me by my mate Paul at http://plasticwarriors.blogspot.com.au/?view=classic

They are an extremely rare kit nowadays and I am really grateful, I have always wanted one of these. Will build this kit to a wargames standard (hopefully better) and use it in games. These were operational by 1916 and served various nations into the 1920s; might even see a game out one day with my small Nationalist Chinese collection. Anyone else made one of these? A real beauty!

    it's in 1:28 scale and it's really too big for a wargame, but it's on your box cover!
    good luck with it!
