Roden 1/48 Heinkel 51

The first model to be completed in 2016 is Roden’s Heinkel 51. Apart from the complex undercarriage arrangement moulded in several awkward parts and a few sink marks, the kit isn’t too difficult to build and looks pretty good when completed, due to some nice moulded detail and fine panel lines. Plus the fact that it’s a great looking plane. The colourful between the wars trainer option isn’t in the kit, but came from an old Aeromaster sheet that I bought for the Classic Airframes kit that I never finished about twenty years ago.
