China ' T' Biplane - Gray Camo

Yesterday we looked at the brown camouflaged biplane from the 'Classic Wings' set made by the Chinese firm of 'T' and today we'll take a gander at the gray version. You'll notice these biplanes are equipped with bubble canopies. As planes became faster it was necessary to enclose the cockpits with canopies but the bubble canopy wasn't introduced in its truest form until 1940 when it appeared on the British Miles M.20. Biplanes of the type represented by our toy wouldn't have had much more than a windscreen to protect the pilot. Still, it's a nice toy and I hope you - Enjoy!
