WWI Kit Planes


Just interested in knowing which companies make a nice selection of WWI Vintage (scale) Aircraft?

I know Balsa USA has a Few, who else does?

Try Arizona models, they have a large selection of nice kits and some arc, proctor have a few less. 3seabees have arfs which are available in a ready to paint or cover edition and I prefer their planes to all the rest when finished.
here are the links to the three I mentioned. Dynaflite and Greatplanes both do a couple of models but they are fun scale.

Good Luck

There's a company in England with a decent line of WWI models... I;ll see if I can find them again. They have a Kit for a Sopwith Pup that is pretty nice (acording to the specs and reviews I found) comes with the spun aluminum cowl. Not bad price when I was looking, but the shipping brings it up.

Not finding the maker I was thinking of... but:

http://www.kitcutters.com/ has several WWI models listed. Bascly they cut kits for plansets you can buy. If you can find a planset... they can cut the kit. (for a price...)

Fhhuber, is it Mick Reeves that you are thinking of?

Nope, not Mick Reeves http://www.mickreevesmodels.co.uk/

He does have some good looking kits... but the one I was thinking of is closer to 1/7 scale. (1/8 maybe... 1/6 probably) It was in line with the scale of the Great Planes Fokker Dr1 ARF for .46-61. but a little smaller

*************

I found it (did another search)

http://www.dbsportandscale.com/sopwith-pup-E.htm

He ALSO has a 1/4 scale. (a bunch of interresting kits... looks like decent pricing for what they are.)
