anyone know where to get an affordable model of a Farman f30 bomber (used by Russia in WWI, then various sides of the RCW)? scale 1/72 and down. I'm finding f20s, and f40s, but no 30s. thanks in advance!

The only one I can find is from Omega Models:
Farman Far-Tri (F.30) 72088 1/72 scale
It's 24 Euros though, so probably doesn't fit "affordable."

I also found Omega Models 72004 Farman F.30bis 1/72 but it's not listed on their site.

Shapeways offers a 1/144 Farman H.F.30 for $17.06 USD.

i found this on Shapeways, link
though the cockpit seems too low. In photos I've seen the cockpit is elevated to the top of the two wings: link

Given the cockpit position, the Shapeways hf30 i posted first doesnt seem much different than this hf20, though I don't know much about aircraft: link

thanks Schogun, ill check if my local shop can get that in. the shipping might be the difference for me. I think we crossed posts, I found that Shapeways model, weighing if I should get it, and if the cheaper f20 is really any different than the f30 they offer. also found tumbling dice has one, but it's in 1/600, which might be too small for me, and there's no photo on the website. ⁨thanks again

I've got an Omega Farman F-30bis, stock number 72003, which I bought back in 1999. Farmans are hard to find and this wasn't exactly the model I wanted (I was looking for an MF 7, which Omega doesn't make), but I settled. Of course, I still haven't assembled it. The price tag on the box says "$24.95 Sale $21.95 USD." It seems to be listed on the Omega site for 24 Euros.
