James Fahey brings us another preview of some resin detail parts for the Roden 1:32 DH 2.


"The Roden 1:32 DH 2 has been warmly received by the WWI modelling community but some aspects of the kit could really do with an upgrade. The hardest parts for modellers to remedy are the seat and the propellor. These two replacement parts are produced by master caster Brian Fawcett and marketed currently by Pheon Models. . ."

This is EXACTLY the kind of thing that I look for from Aeroscale. I just received this kit, have the Eduard PE upgrade, and now will order this, too. The seat would be a nightmare trying to scratch-build. I have a Russian-made upgrade for the engine, too.

The prop looks amazingly like the one for the WNW RAF SE-5a. Are they the same/similar? The WNW kit comes with two props, one two-bladed and one four-bladed.

Update on postage: Yanks and the rest of the world pay 2 pounds 50.

Nice detail sets, not a kit I will be buying though with my terror of rigging... LOL

The prop does look similar to the SE5a but the SE5a one is wider and more paddle like, still with a little work a cheapskate...I mean enterprising modeller..:-P could use it...if its dimensionally close.

I want my WNW Albi NOW!...stomps petulantly......hoping Terri doenst pont out all my unfinished builds....

You would also have to cut off the boss and place it on the other side of the prop .

Come Keith would I do that to you ........
