Mikołaj75, a modeller known for 1/72 kits impressive superdetailing, posted on Polish forums his work-in-progress report from the Arma Hobby 1/72 PZL P.7a build. He kindly allowed us to show his photos and comments in the Armahobbynews.pl Gallery!
Look what an experienced modeller can do with this simple kit!
I like this aeroplane. It reminds me of less a thoroughbred warrior than an agile skirmisher who can overcome the dumber thugs. For a long time, it didn’t hit my workshop, but now, due to delays in other projects, I took it for a quick build.
- Advantages: logical design of kit parts, very good fit;
- disadvantages: trailing edge and parts cleaning (this can be a problem only for beginners).
Range of modifications you can see on the photos – fuselage surface details and wing trailing edge sharpening at the cost of losing the wing undersurface texture.
Control panel is aftermarket from Yahu. I scratchbuilt various little details like the tail skid, rods in the Townend ring, step, riveting.
Painted with various paints, main camouflage colour is Bilmodel.
