TOPIC: Italeri 1/72 Horsa Glider added to my gliders

Italeri 1/72 Horsa Glider added to my gliders 01 Feb 2020 00:58 #1

Just finished the Horsa from Italeri. Fit was pretty good on the major parts but other parts like the landing gear had no locating marks so it was off to the photos, and Italeri would have you put the aileron mass balances on backwards. RC 56 glue for the windows worked well. Paint is Tamiya dark earth and dark green, Model Master for the flat black and the white. The decals from 3 kits were a complete mess so some are from spares and others are from a laser printer. The nose wheel was lengthened with brass tubing and music wire.









With the Airfix C-47 (as a C-53), Italeri 1/72 CG-4A, and Airlines/Frog Hotspur


Horsa, CG-4A, and Italeri Me 321 Gigant, with an Academy Dodge ambulance for scale:

Nice one John!
Everything I’ve read and seen about these gliders makes me wonder how anyone could have climbed aboard them

Thanks, Alex, I've enjoyed your recent posts. Glad to see you back at the bench.

Christian, I do have an Antonov A-7 and a Gribovskii G-11 in the stash. Maybe someday I'll get to them.
