Max Holste Broussard - Utility Transport

Recommended Posts

A little over a year in the making, my 1/72 scale Max Holste MH.1521 Broussard. Serial #001 out of an initial batch of 13.

In February 2018, I spent a day photographing and measuring the real aircraft in order to make some scale drawings. These drawings were used to produce master patterns, which were in turn used to make silicone moulds. The moulds then allowed multiple copies of the airframe to be made, some to be assembled for customers, others to sell as a limited run of kits.

I just finished the first model yesterday, and the first few resin kits went out via Royal Mail today.

It's been quite a lot of work to make the master patterns, moulds, graphics for the decals and instructions, but it's turned out a lovel little model.
