Caudron G.4 Copper State Models 1/48

So my great adventure with the best kit I`ve built so far is over. I think Edgar and the whole CSM team has done a great job.
My model depicts the G.4 used for artillery spotting in C.74 Franco/Belgian unit. Several modifications have been made such as Chauviere propellers, Colt machine gun, different gun mount. The superb quality decals with cowling numbers and different serial were printed by Melius Manu. As far as I know all these will be available at CSM soon. The colt gun is greatly detailed with a small PE.

That is absolutely amazing, one of the best pieces of work I've seen here.  That airplane looks like the term "taildragger" applies literally.

That's a jaw dropper if I ever saw one. Just the rigging is just unbelievable!

 

When I saw the overview pics, I thought – this must have taken a lot of patience. But the I saw the close-ups of turnbuckles and the other fittings and realised that the rigging is firmly in the masochist domain. The I felt a great relief that I'm not into pre-1920:s aviation…

 

Huge respect!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Great galloping gonads Philip, that is one stunning replica. Well done, and it deserves to be in a museum. Your patience has been rewarded with a beautiful model.
