RE-8 "Harry Tate"
Posted 28 October 2010 - 08:23 PM
The RE-8 was a mid war (WW1) bomber / observation plane, it acquired the nickname Harry Tate (a popular entertainer of the time) because when you say RE-8 with a thick english accent is sounds similar to Harry Tate.
This is the Airfix RE-8 kit, the plastic was stamped 1958 so this was one of the first kits Airfix made, although this was a 1980s re-issue. While it was not my first WW1 plane it was my first attempt at rigging in 1/72. I have since started to go back and rig earlier models. The rigging is .008" guitar string held in place with epoxy.
