Mr Harvey's preview of this kit is at http://www.aussiemodeller.com.au/pages/ ... yCA-8.html

I'll add some build notes in due course, but here's the end result for now.

I'm not older than dirt, but I do remember when it was new.

Nice work Dave. Open Cockpit really sets this one off nicely ands colours look spot on.
I'm thinking about getting the Special Hobby kit one of these days.
Their Boomerang looks quite neat, so would think that the Wirraway is probably just as good.

Cheers .. Dave

Superb effort on a highly significant aircraft - it shot down an 11th Sentai Ki-43 on Boxing Day 1942 and in March 1944 Uncle Len "Black Magic" Waters flew it twice with 5SFTS Uranquinty. :-)
