Good one, Barry! And Ray is indeed your man on this - he had a 707 in Aer Lingus colours, which won the IPMS USA prize a few years back. A photo of it is the headline photo for the IPMS Ireland facebook group.

As per my previous posts, I'm planning on building a 1:48 Roden DH4 as a DH16. Actually I'm really looking forward to this one, even though I don't usually build civil models and I prefer 1:72. The time for the build and the scale should provide scope to do a high level of detailing, maybe even have the passenger cabin open.

Going to go from this

There was athread on Britmodeller about this a couple of years back - might be of some help...

Or ask Joe Moran here on the forum as i'd say he has plenty of Sticks and Strings reference material and advice. :>

Is it within in the rules to build 2 models for a group build? Only I came across another civilian plane over the weekend that I just have to build, and seeing as it will be a scratch build Iโ€™ll probably start it before the DH 16.

My understanding has always been you can build as many as you like Marklo.

Brilliant, then Iโ€™m also going to build a 1913 deperdussin racer, scale tbd, either 1:48 or 1:32๐Ÿ˜Š just have to figure how big either one will be, probably the latter as itโ€™s a pretty small plane.ill start a thread with some images when I get back to a working PC.
