Michal Sindera has sent in a great build of Arma Hobbies 1/72nd PZL P.1/I prototype, which was a Polish fighter that first flew in 1929.

Hi Michal

Lovely job! Thanks for submitting such an excellent article. I've long been a fan of PZL's gull-winged fighters in all their forms, so it's great to see the first of the line.

All the best

Andy, many thanks for taking care of this feature - great job!

Thanks for comment Rowan, I'm really very glad you like my model. Arma Hobby had filled a huge gap on the Polish gull-winged fighters kits market. They have released P.1, P.6, P.7, P.8 and P.11 prototypes in both 1:72 and 1:48 scales. The P.1 was released in two boxings of the first and second prototypes differing in the engine nacelles, rudder, struts and of course the painting options. However the first prototype was released only in the 1:72 scale. I will try to build more of this line in the future - P.1 second prototype and P.8 are already in my stash.

Many thanks Filip. I'm waiting impatiently for your second Cauldron to be finished.
