Excellent horns and rigging PC and a great save on the struts.

I agree with Simon - the skills you have shown here would surely attract a mate... be careful who you show it to!

Wonderful work :)

A self-taught classicist comes out with a word like ‘blort’?!

 

Is that from Greek or Roman origin?

 

I'll have you know it was good enough for Philip Larkin.

So what’s next after this small-but-perfectly-formed Pole?

Steady on! I've not finished this one yet! In fact, I made life harder for myself, because I have to put some anti-personnel fragmentation decals behind the control wires...

Lovely work sir, and a few likes for the perseverance. Those control wires look pukka, almost as if they actually work.

Everything started off quite well tonight. I even managed to coax the decals off their backing paper (thanks to literally boiling water) without wrecking them, but then...a catalog of disaster. I gripped the fuselage and set free a control wire and ruined the serial. The RWD.8s on the rudder looked dodgy, then fell off like a pair of snowflakes, gently drifting down to that bourne from whence no model kit part returns. Oh how the house echoed with mighty oaths. So I dug through my huge bin of decals...no red numbers! I used black Pegasus WWI RFC serials, as the font was close, and then the white kit RWD.8 tail marking decals. I fear I've very badly let the side down on this one, but I tried my best, I really did. Anyway, unusually for me, RFI here.

Notwithstanding the decal issues: that is a beautiful model of a lovely-looking aircraft, good job mate B)

Lovely little model PC - despite your usual modesty she's turned out beautifully.

If you hadn’t pointed out the “errors”, I wouldn’t have noticed them.  Even once told where they are, I’m not convinced.

 

basically, she looks lovely & you’ve doneva great job

Yes, the errors are entirely overlookable and really don't affect the outcome.

Probably the most charitable summation of my life I can hope for, in the end.

@amblypygid’s summation could do double duty for most eulogies.

 

It is a splendid model which you’ve done full justice to

 

Decals are a regular pain in the behind. I’m never quite grateful enough when I yet the rare ones which aren’t yellow, insufficiently opaque and don’t disintegrate, tear, fold over on themselves, drift aimlessly over the model away from their intended location.
