Full Review with Geoff Coughlin
The Scottish Aviation Bulldog T.1 has always been a favourite of mine – come to think of it, most RAF training aircraft post WW2 for that matter. Years ago I built the lovely little 1:72 kit released by Airfix and now we have a very presentable 1:48 scale kit that will please many of you I’m sure.
Let’s take another look at the kit…
As you can see, what you get in the box is pretty good, especially for a smaller kit manufacturer. We’ll need to find a seat harness from somewhere and I’m working on that. In addition some instrument faces (decals) will be needed and I think I have some from Airscale that could work – we’ll look more closely at that soon.
I do love the lines of the Bulldog and the aircraft has a special place because my brother Chris flew solo in one when learning to fly at Bristol University Air Squadron based at Filton, UK back in the late 1970s/early 80s.
