Sierra Scale Models question
« on: February 14, 2012, 03:41:16 AM »
Hi all.

I see that the Sierra Scale Models are again open for business. I understand that their vacuforms are pretty much old school, esp. in the bare cockpits.

But is their 1/48 A-H stuff accurate, especially the Ufag C.I and Phonix C.I?

I have the HR Models resin kits and they are less then stellar, while Phonix is salvageable the UFAG is completely fictitious.

TIA

  Vedran,
The Sierra Phonix C.I matches quite well with the Windsock drawings and builds up into an excellent example.As for the UFAG C.I  it compares  well with the drawings and measurements contained in Austro-Hungarian Army Aircraft of World War One. IMHO the Sierra Scale kits are the Cadillac of WW I vacuforms.

Thank you Gregory.

Now I need a cunning plan since the Sierra website states "Sorry, no foreign orders are accepted."

Thanks Bud. I can't recall the name of the gentleman who ran Sierra Scale, but I do remember him as being a super nice guy. Got to see about any modeling shows going on in Louisville, KY so I can catch up with him.

  Warren,
The gentleman you're referring to is Bob Norgren. I think there's a contact listed on his web site so you drop him a line. If not PM me and I'll give you his address.
Highest Regards,

D'oh!  That's it Gregory, thanks!  Back during my days on the WWI Modeling List, we took a trip to Louisville, and he told me next time to give him a call and we'd meet for a bite and a beverage. He's a great guy.

(I'm bad with people's names sometimes, LOL!)
