1/144 DH Vampire FB.6 - Small Scale Model

 1/144 DeHavilland DH Vampire FB.6 - Small Scale Models

We have waited a long time for a DeHavilland Vampire in 1/144 and now we have a nice FB.6 as provided here by Small Scale Shop. This version is optimised for Shapeways 'Fine Ultra Detail' material' (FUD) with a "White Strong Flexible" (WSF) version to follow shortly.

The FB.6 is an evolution of the F.1 that also flew in 1945 didn't enter service until 1946, thus becoming the second jet fighter to enter service with the RAF.The FB.6 was very successful and led to a "Sea Vampire" for Royal Navy use and was widely exported to over 30 countries. This aircraft would obviously look great along site your F-Toys Meteor, or hunting down those Me.262s!?

So maybe we can also expect a Venom soon! Would be perfect though if they had the long nose of 'our' swiss variants... ;-)

The Venom is in my plans.
Regarding the nose, that can be arranged. ;)
