Go figure. I have one of those Gowland kits (still unbuilt) of a 1913
Mercedes convertible. The plastic isn't styrene at all. perhaps it's
celluloid? It has a different weight and "touch" than modern kits, and while
it's not too warped -at least not more than a modern styrene kit- the larger
parts seem to be more elastic when forced to fit into each other than
regular modern kits.
I hestitate to build it, as I can't decide if it's worth coreecting some
features, which glue to use, and if regular Humbrol enamels would even stick
to this plastic. So far, I've studied the pieces to make new parts for a
1/72 version of the same car, for a white metal kit by Reviresco.
Thanks- but- maybe I'll just finish that BattleAx 1/32 D.VII as a brain

Diego is handing out Merlin kits? I'll take a Pfalz D.VIII or Fokker D.I ;)
