Tarangus has released a brand new 1/48 tooling of the Scottish Aviation Bulldog. Tim Hatton [litespeed] has a crack at building this limited run kit.

This model looks like it builds up nicely. Maybe they will be able to improve the canopy?

Would love to build one, I can't get enough of RAF trainers. But 35 quid for a tiny single sprue kit? Can't justify to myself let alone my better half.

The kit is great. Espcially in Swedish splinter camo this would be an eye catcher. I have built the Airfix 1-72 Bulldog loooong time ago in the brush era...

It is a great kit Sebastian and I really enjoyed building it. I would definitely go for the Swedish splinter camo for the next build. I built three Airfix Bulldogs a very looooong time ago. I remember using lots of canned spray paint for a good glossy finish. My mum was not best pleased with the fumes even though I sprayed the kits outside
All the best.
