If it's anything like the Gullows stuff, I would say "Run Forest
Run". For the most part I've not had a lot of success working with
wooden kits. It's a lot different then plastic. By looking at the
kit, I would say you probably need some experience with wooden ship
models or the like to have a decent shot at getting it done with
"museum quality". That being said, it's almost worth the $$$ just to
get that fine looking Clerget engine kit (:>
I have not seen the Camel kit, but have the Hasagawa Wright Flyer kit.
It is as far above a Guillow kit as is the price. It is intended as a
true shelf scale model. I suspect from the photos that the Camel kit
That said, I still build the Guillows kits. Remember, they are
intended as FLYING models. They can, with a lot of work, be made into
decent scale models. If the model depicts a metal-covered aircraft one
must cover with styrene sheet or good card stock, instead of tissue.
For the older, fabric covered aircraft the tissue covering works well.
One must scratch cockpit and engine, however.
