Information

One of the most prestigious air races of its day, the MacRobertson England to Australia air race of 1934 was contested by three DH.88 Comet aircraft, with 'Black Magic' G-ACSP being the first to take off. Unfortunately engine problems curtailed its involvement while its sister machine 'Grosvenor House' won the race. G-ACSR also suffered reliability issues during the race, but its high speed still enabled it to finish in fourth position.

Sorry, but this kit is bad...
By 3rdslow411 April 11, 2017
The scale causes this kit to assemble like a resin kit- thick parts throughout, no pins, bad fits, wing roots don't match the wing shape, fuselage sides are noticeably different. I don't believe the wing tips are correct. Maybe for the price it's ok- but Airfix needs to go back to fix this one. I really wanted this kit to be good, but it took more filler than an Airfix 1/24 Spitfire mod 22/24!!
