Its obvious that I need a modelling project and a small travelling kit
tools and material.

I'll have glues and putty, knives and sandpaper. Paint and an airbrush
a can of air.

Now I need a kit which should be able to be built into a "nice" replica
without any major surgery. I _might_ change the decals, paint job should
simple. I will replace struts if necessary but detailing should be
with no more than some Aeroclub guns and a seat (or 2)

So the question is:

What is the "best" good basic injection moulded 1/72 aircraft kit of a
prototype in all your humble opinions ? !!

IMHO, it's the Airfix Sopwith Pup. What's more, it's a realistic project
for the amount of time you have available.
