Special Expanded Review - Revell 1/48 scale Stearman biplane

By Chuck Davis
Published: July 8, 2014

After a decades-long wait, modelers can finally welcome a newly tooled 1/48 scale Stearman plastic model kit to compete with the vintage Lindberg kit. Reflecting current molding technology, Revell’s Stearman is loaded with petite surface details, including such finery as a combination lock on the baggage compartment. The interior is graced with an abundance of detail, tubular structure is well represented along the full length of the fuselage, and the engine accessory bay lacks only wiring and tubing for a well-furnished look.
