Aviattic is a very well know name in WWI modelling world! Their produtcs are always top noch about originality and detail.

Richard from Aviattic is a devoted modeler and a WWI passionate so all their projects will come at their very best and a truly dedicate product.

The love for their products is well patent on all their work.

Today we are going to take a look into their new RAF/RFC Towing trailer.

This little resin kit that comes in medium hard plastic box with foam inside to protect all the resin parts.

No chance to break or damaged the resin pieces. The packing is highly professional.

         Opening the plastic box, you get 22 resin parts and a quite big PE sheet with several parts in a total of 47 parts.

The casting system is a topnotch in all resin manufacture. You got a good quality grey resin, with some flash that need to be remove.

The only bigger problem is on the wheels rims. All the flash inside the rims will not be easy to clean but be assuring that our example is a pre-production item that was given to us at Telford so the final production batch does not have this little outcome.

However the wheels are very well casted and with lots of small details on the rims and tyres.

This trailer does have lots of details not only giving be the resin texture but also the several PE parts that gives a lot of “living” to this one.

The large trailer bed is in one single resin piece with several details like nuts and bolts and wood veins. A quite impressive detail and casting work.

And as you can see very little cleaning whatsoever. Simply amazing.

 

All other resin parts are in very good shape of casting with no bubbles or distortions with lovely details like the springs, tool box, lamps  and several hooks and handles.

Passing on the the PE sheet, this one comes in natural cooper with makes it more annealing friendly (at least for me).

For the maneability of it, it look quite easy to work with, being the more difficult one the mudgards.

All the downside structure and weight support is made from PE making a bit complex and working part but easy to do by the intermediate modeler.

For inspiration, Aviattic give a small flyer with a pic with a Alb D.V on the top of trailer being towed.

Aviattic has been in the past few years a manufacture that every WWI modeler love because Aviattic produce some great produts.

This trailer is just a perfect excuse to make a WnW with no rigging and no wings and it’s a perfect match to Aviattic truck (Marienfelde" Lorry).

 

I can highly recommend the fuel cart to all but novice modeler.

         THANKS AVIATTIC FOR DOING THIS TRAILER.

Very High Recommend

Our truly and sincere thanks to Richard from Aviattic for the sample and for making these fantastic WWI accessories.
