1/144 Canadair CP-107 Argus - Welsh Models
Welsh Models have built a reputation for high quality and unusual VAC-FORM kits.
These kits ranged from simple conversions (two seat hunter), corrections to plastic kits (Electra) to full kits or unusual military or civil aircraft. (well, i say unusual..., but, I mean the items that Revell etc will never produce!)
In response to success/demand, Welsh Models have moved into Mixed Media kits including resin or pressure molding (like Oz Mods) into their range to make them more accessible and less scary. Now, Welsh Models have begun to issue selected kits as full resin kit (+metal fittings)
One of the first and finest looking of these is the Canadair CP-107 Argus available as the Mk.1 or Mk.2. I think this is an interesting development and look forward to more resin and mixed media kits from this supplier. Decals are supplied with the kit.
Price: 49.80 GBP
Even if you dont like this kit, the site is well worth a viewing:
