Another build of an ex Fred Harris build - RAAF Waco A54-1

Postby David E » Mon May 13, 2019 9:54 am

Not too many of the kits that Fred passed onto me to go now.

This time around it's a resin (Daco?) Waco, representing the sole impressed RAAF example. It was a bit of a roughie and a more skilled modeller could've done more with it but it looks ok in the cabinet. Big thanks to Uncle Les for the prop.

The day I finished it I found a photo of A54-1 in RAAF camouflage and markings on Geoff Goodall's site. Apart from the demarcation on the engine cowl I think I got it close enough.

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

Bravo David,

Not a plane you see built much (if at all). Nice tribute to Fred.

Cheers
