Westland Whirlwind 1/50 scale


Here is another of one of my collections. this is a card kit I downloaded on on the download page. there are some great designers out there I was the first one on the forum to build this. it came out pretty well i made a bad mistake I always use areo gloss dope on my card models by mixing 50 50 dope half Nitrate and the other half Butrate, I ran out of nitrate dopt I airbrused the ASreo gloss dope and durring time it put a warp in the wing, when I first built the the kit there was no warp. so for now on I will maske certain to use 50 50 instead of useing straight Butrate at first I didn,t suspect that it would cause any problems like that of balsa and tissue models. So good fellows I a aware there is a warp on the wing not bad but a trained eye can see it. that fellas for looking.
