Has anyone got the 1/72 plastic kit by AZ Models of the Stinson L5 Sentinel? I'm bidding on a kit on ebay, it includes markings for an RAF machine in the Far East

No, but I'd really like to see some pictures if you win one! I've tried emailing AZ Models to see if I could get some wholesale for my website but haven't heard back yet.

I'll do a review for the forum when I get it (presuming I win it, if not i'll just buy one elsewhere). They also do two kits of the Auster III, the only difference being the three different markings available in each kit. One of the kits includes markings for the Auster III MT438, which I have flown before, and served with 656 Squadron in Burma during WW2

The mold looks exactly like the Sword kit that came out some time ago. It's not a beginner kit but can be built up pretty well. The worst part is the price. Ouch!

Any significant fit / finish issues? How's the interior?

Hmm...let's see. I built it quite a while ago.

There are no tabs to help with the vertical and horizontal stabs which would be nice. I've broken off one of my horizontals a few times now.

As for the interior you get a couple seats, a stick and an instrument panel. The framing is also included but is so brittle it pretty much becomes useless after trying to cut it free. The canopy seems to have a little haze to it but you can still see the interior a bit.

Here is a box review I found on hyperscale so you can see how the framing is a problem to remove from the sprue.
