Fonderie Miniature's 1/48 scale Henschel Hs 126 isn't probably the best kit in the world and a lot of work is needed to make something decent out of it. But this is the price to pay if you want to add this rare plane to your collection.

Hi Jean-Luc

Awesome! That's a great article about a stunning bit of kit-building! I take my hat off to you! It's really inspiring - admitedly, not inspiring enough to make me run out and buy the FM kit(!), but really inspiring!

All the best

Great build - a great result from what is apparently a kit for the experienced modeller. I will build a few more Bf 109s before I tackle this one.

Thanks for sharing

Hi all!

Thanks for your kind words!

Rowan, if I understood you well, it's inspiring... not to buy and build the kit! I hope the guys of Fonderie Miniature don't visit Aeroscale and read this!

Well done Jean Luc.... truly!

Talk about turning a sow's ear into a silk purse......

I will never complain about all the work that I've put into my Czech Model T-34 ever again!
