What our Members are building:

Barry is at it again, no sooner has he completed the Persian Fury, he has another project on the way. This time it is not quite a build as a restoration. The aircraft in question is a Henschel Hs 123. The unfinished and un- flown model was built by the late Lloyd from Sydney.

Lloyd was a master builder of large scale models and the Henschel is a magnificent example of his skills. The aircraft is almost completely covered with litho plate to simulate the metal construction and is extremely highly detailed both inside and out. The model is rather heavy due to the extensive detail, the working undercarriage is an amazing piece of model engineering. Barry intends to lighten the model without diminishing any of the detail. The aircraft is built to 1⁄4 scale with a wing span of 2.3 metres, a petrol engine is planned to the finished model providing it can be fitted into the opening engine cowl.
