Here's a look at Revell's fine little new-tool kit of the iconic Stearman.

Hey Rowan ,

I'm pretty impressed with the quality of this kit . Very nice effect with fuselage and wing ribbing . Prop decals are a nice touch for those who don't want to give wood graining or a go or are just plan lazy like me sometimes

Just might have to buy this little gem. Of course I'll rely on Terri to post pictures of the rigging holes.

Nothing odd about them not being matched to Revell's own range - there *isn't* a Revell range in the US or Canada. The company's own site FAQ specifically states the Revell paints are German only and that modelers should substitute a match or similar color "from companies such as Testors, Tamiya and others."

Cheers Al

I hadn't realised that. Revell (US) paints were such a part of my youth, I assumed they must still carry a range these days.

All the best
