Model Airways Collection - built by David Byrne

David Byrne recently sent us pictures of his completed Conestoga Wagon by Model Trailways (see post in Trailways & Battlefields)! What is interesting is that David has also built, or is in the process of building, ALL of our Model Airways kits!

I'm trying to get pictures of David's Model Airways work - stay tuned!

David's comments: In addition to the Conestoga Wagon, I have also built the New Bedford Whaleboat, Bounty Launch, Bluenose, Picket Boat, Albatross, Nieuport 28, Wright Flyer, andCurtiss Jenny kits. I am currently building the Benjamin Latham kit and have the Flying Fish and Sopwith Camel kits resting on a shelf in my hobby room waiting to be built.

I have found all of the kits generally well engineered, the quality of wood and fittings to be very good and the plans to be excellent. The "Jenny" kit, in particular, was exquisite.

Thanks for many years of satisfying modeling, David Byrne.
