This post is also available in: Polish

The model of the first PZL fighter 1:48 scale showed its interior . Today, next episode of the saga of the progenitor of the series of Polish fighters from the ’30 XX century. See what hides inside our replica !

Photoetched fret is another addition to our model. It represents the fuselage construction in the cockpit section: seat , instrument panel and a few other details of the interior and the surface of the model.

Inside the cabin, seen from the “entrance” . Not only cockpit details but also wing surface is visible on picture. See beautifully rendered corrugated plate and reinforcement tabs. Windscreen shows an agressive, fighter look. Wing-fuselage transition is very faithfully rendered and handles slot adds busy look there. Everything is accurately reproduced in the model and part fit is perfect.

    The PE fret you’re including looks like a wonderful addition. Even the canopy frame!

    I am definitely looking forward to building this kit!

    1. Thank you! I hope to build two of them. One clean and second heavily weathered.

    My hope is that I can build one, as a nice, clean, “closed up” P.1, while build a second with the engine covers removed, and a few other smaller panels opened up. Though much scratch building may be needed, this certainly is a hope I would like to see come to light.

    The biggest concern I have is with the decals. A common problem raised with builders of the 1/48 PZL P.11c was that the skin on the wings made it difficult for the Chess Board to sit within the fine small grooves, even with a lot of decal setting solution applied. Perhaps with this texture, the better approach would be paint masks? (Please note, having build the P.11, I have also had this problem, and the first time around I ended up making my own paint masks, but this is in now way to discredit the quality of the decals – they really were superb).

    (Przepraszam za mój polski tekst).

    Tak! Chcę zbudować dwa – jeden bardzo czysty i nowy; drugi z otwartych paneli i silnika widzialnego. To nie będzie łatwe, ale chciałbym pokazać jak najwięcej z tego samolotu.

    Największym zmartwieniem mam jest z naklejkami (decals). Wiele osób (ja też), którzy budowali na 1/48 PZL P.11 miał problemy z naklejek na skrzydłach. I w końcu zrobiłem i użyłem maski do malowania szachownicy. Być może maski pomoże również tutaj?

    Nie mogę się doczekać! PZL P.1! Dziękuję!


    1. It was a hard decision – masks or decals. Both solutions have advantages and disadvantages. We probably would like to include decals in kit. Just waiting for tests when production wings are ready, within a few days. Anyway we will include in kit a printed insignia scheme that fits exactly to model kit. It can be used for preparing masks by modeler.

        Wojtek, that is brilliant!

    Beautiful! I look forward to building a couple of these as well. Great subject and very important to aviation history! Thanks for the work to release this kit!
