I'm sure the rigging will turn out beautifully

The oil staining on those nacelles and wing plates is superb. The overall finish is something to die for.... Another masterpiece is emerging from your skilled hands.

Many thanks!!!
Nothing spectacular but I keep on working. Around sixty buckles and lines prepared to be fixed to the upper wing anchor points... twice as much still left to be done.

Super wings and super floats. The weathering looks just right and the wing really does look translucent.

Well, I am totally in awe of this! What stunning work, painting and photography. The kit looks pretty good too! I also love the scratch-built bits as well.

 

Great job Xmald.

I`ve got the same feelings towards the rigging part of the job  ;)

My Caudron finally looks like a plane  ;) The engineering of the kit is very good - even with the floats and a rather overall complicated construction, it`s still easy to keep things well aligned and correct in shape.

Wow! I'm in a lack for words... Simply stunning :worthy:

 

Nearly finished now, right? What's still to be done, apart from installing the propellers?

 

Cheers

Got to agree with the above. This is a truly outstanding piece of modelling. Just tail surfaces and props to go if I am not too badly mistaken.

Thanks for your encouraging words mates!
I`m on the final stretch with this one... Some 20 wires left, along with details, gun, trestles and the beaching trolleys. One of my quickest builds, thanks to the kit`s extraordinary quality.

'Exquisite' doesn't do this justice but that's the closest language can come to describing this level of work.
