Sky Guardians. This
is what I first wrote about this model in 2007:
" There's a new Butcher-Bird on the
block, and it seems to be a winner. Witty's practice of keeping
it simple has given this Priller an attractive, professional look
that is a pleasure to photograph and display. The sliding canopy
is well done (though the painted canopy frame on the front of the
sliding part is a bit heavy), and the general color and paint quality
is topnotch. My only gripe might be the thickness of the plastic
at the top of the canopy.
"This copy came with a flaw in the prop/fan mount. The fan
stuck out about 1/16th of a inch, and looked pretty awful. I pulled
the prop/fan off (it is mounted on a steal peg), made the hole in
the prop hub a little deeper (don't over do it!), and reattached
the prop. Worked like a charm."
Given events transpired and experience gained since then, I was
a bit generous. However, I still had to re-photograph the model
because the pictures were so utterly awful that there wasn't any
choice (except to delete the pictures entirely, of course!). Hobby
Master is coming out with a Priller Fw 190A in 1/48, and it looks
like a honest-to-goodness knockout, no apologies necessary!
