LukGraph 32-26 de Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide/Dominie


Recommended Posts

VERY nice kit but nothing is perfect.

 

Out of my memory:

- incorrect front seat and support

- incorrect lower shape of rear window

- missing fuel tank plugs on engine nacelles

- mating the printed front engine nacelle with the rear will not be easy as the top profile of both is noticeably misaligned

- front of engine nacelle does not have the correct curvature

 

Not terrible but some of those issues could have been easily avoided.

Hi Iain,

 

This is indeed a wonderful kit as your review is clearly showing it.

 

Actually, I dry fitted most of the items and studied closely the airframe scale replica as I'm interested for years in the Dominies used to train RAF radio navigators during WW2. I also have a pile of Dragon Rapide books and articles at home.

 

This explains that!

The escape 'panels' on top of the fuselage should be flush not recessed as they were weakened 'punch-out' canvas, which would have been better replicated with a decal. However, an easy enough fix with some Milliput.

 

Absolutely, not terrible by any means and barely detracts from a truly wonderful kit, but worth mentioning all the same.

 

Zac.
