Looking for a Contrail 1/72 Blackburn Kangaroo

Postby Peter Roberts » Tue Jun 18, 2019 1:54 pm

Hi All

I know, a long shot, but if you have a 1/72 scale Contrail Blackburn Kangaroo in the stash and are happy to remove it, I am happy to take it off your hands.

Please PM me if that is you,

Thank you

Hi Pete
May I suggest you have a serious look at scratching building this one
Contrail kits are not terrible, but you'd probably end up with e more accurate and stronger model if you scratch build the whole thing.
A slab sided airframe like the Kangaroo's is not hard to make from sheet polystyrene and the wings and tail assembly can be done easily using the "Woodman" method
There's your basic structure !! - if you are using a Contrail kit you have to do all your own detail work anyway
If you want some references I can help - PM me - you have my direct email
regards
David
(you sold me that detail set for the 1/32 Mirage )

Hi David, thanks, yes, looks like that is the way I'll have to go, but will likely do 1/48th if so. I was looking to hopefully cut down time a bit with some preformed parts. Oh well. Thank you for the offer the re: references.
