Now I'm jealous! I love unusual kits like this one. Entoni Seperic reviews X-Resin’s 1/48 PWS-A (licence built Avia BH.33).

Michal,

I am very pleased that you find this review helpful. You might also like to know that X-resin has other potentially interesting subjects in same scale for your Polish fellow modelers such as: Potez XXV, PWS-16bis, PWS-10, Yakovlev UT-2, PWS-A, Avia BH.33, RWD-13 late version, RWD-13S Ambulance, PWS-26, PWS-26 Silver edition, Caudron Renault CR.714 C1 “Cyclone” Polish Service in France and Finnish Service.

All the best,
Entoni

I have never heard about this company until today and you say Entoni they have already released so many polish airplanes... Well, I have found today on two largest polish modeling forums just two threads about their kits: one buildblog of the PWS-A and one gallery of the finished PWS-10. X-Resin should work on the marketing a bit more

Michal,

I think you're right. They can only benefit from different marketing approach. The kits I mentioned are presented on a leaflet that came with the box. It is hard for me to say about the quality of their other kits, but I already contacted them to see whether there is any interest to have them reviewed. I just wanted to help them a bit and spread the news...

What's more funny I suspect this is a Polish company. Their e-mail address which you gave in the review is on the known polish domain wp.pl. I have also some old private e-mail account there

Here's the link to the build kit of PWS-10, I hope the author don't mind and I won't be prosecuted for doing this: LINK People say there are some issues with the wing, it's a bit curved while it should be straight/leveled as a board.
