KK P-56 Provost
Thursday, 24 January 2019  | 

It's interesting that this model is of the Cheetah engined prototype of 1950 and not the production version with the Lynx engine with a different nose profile.
The kit parts are all excellent quality and it builds into a lovely model. A couple of small issues -
The two laser cut sheets are not quite the same 'scale' This results in the formers and ribs for one side of the model being larger than the other. The difference in height of the larger fusalage formers is about 2mm, which is not a huge problem once you are aware of it. A problem with the CAD scaling perhaps?
The other point is that the plan has been printed with about 10mm of the right hand side of the written instructions missing.
It's a pity that you have to advise that these kits are not suitable for anyone under 14. I'm sure we were making them from around 8 or 9 and great fun they were to. Also it's a shame Jetex motors are not available - The jets always seemed to fly better than the rubber powered ones.


Response:

Thanks for taking the time to review the Provost kit.
It's great that you've pointed out the shortcomings of the kit in detail - we can get on to this straight away.
The cut parts issue is almost certainly scaling and will be easy to fix.
The plan might be a bit trickier! We're reliant on the plans that were passed on to us by the previous owners and so until a new plan (from an old kit) comes up that we can scan, we have to make do with what we've got.
Unfortunately, health and safety rules for toys and CE marking mean we have to classify our kits as collectibles - progress eh?
Same thing goes for Jetex...
