WW1 RAF/RFC Towing Trailer

Kit # 72073 Preview by F. Giovagnorio

This is the standard trailer used by the R.A.F. and allies during World War I, frequently seen in wartime photos while towing damaged planes.

I am happy to see that GB Modelli has started protecting their kits with a sturdy cardboard box, while previously they were sold in simple, unprotected plastic bags.

The parts are very crisply molded, with quite a bit of flash, which is something you must expect from limited-production resin kits; being very thin, it can be easily separated form the pieces. No warping, no pin-holes and minimal attachment blocks. The resin is soft enough to be easily cut with a sharp hobby knife without splintering or excessive effort.

The model is well-engineered, so that it can be built both in parking or travelling position.


The assembling instructions for this kit, in contrast with the usual drawings, are several photos showing the different steps: it is a very good idea because it makes the whole process definitely clearer. Although the photos can be seen on the website of GBModelli (page), there is a page inside the box containing all the photos printed on paper..


Thanks to Georgio Briga (GB Modelli) for the review sample.
