    Category: 2 - Intermediate

    Type: PZL P-11c
    Subject: Aircraft '10', 161 Eskadra Mysliwska (161 Fighter squadron), Early 1939
    Kit: RPM #72011
    Scale: 1:72
    Accessories: Techmod decals #72120B - PZL P-11c
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    This is my first entry in this build. Kit and decals were very kindly supplied by Wojtek (dziekuje my friend!)

    Aircraft '10' was chosen purely because I love it's pre-war upper wing markings! :)
    I believe these would have been overpainted at outbreak of hostilities, judging by same markings in Olive drab supplied on the sheet, for which no explanation is given.

    I'll say! I have one in 1/48 on my shelf, and it is small. Great to see one of the coolest fighter designs ever in this build!

    Ha, when I caught site of it, the wings suddenly reminded me of the serving trays at the drive-in....

    Should be a cracker.

    Cheers guys! Do love her gull wing myself...

    Kit measures out at L: 102 mm, Span: 149 mm. Not huge, but the Fokker Dr.I and Polikarpov I-16 in the collection are even smaller!

    (Thanks for stickying the thread Wojtku!)

    Cheers guys!

    Parts are off the sprues and being cleaned up. Quite a bit to correct with the kit, working out the best plan of attack.
