While I wait for some paints for the F16 I'm building I thought I would see if this was really a "weekend" kit.
Started on the cockpit floor and insides, painted using Andrea & Gamesworkshop paints. Seat drilled out after finding refs on interweb.
Two halves stuck together, painting and more tomorrow.

There is no hard and fast rules, but my feeling is if you can enter a build 1minute before the cut off and get it finished along with a build thread and gallery pics then it's fin by me.

Someone was having a lend of you. The great majority of Nie-17s were aluminium doped, so should be a fairly glossy painted aluminium finish.

Will have to leave it for a couple of hours as the dog has picked up something in it's ear while out for a walk so a trip to the vets, with a £109 out of hours charge but the poor thing is in some discomfort and it won't wait till tomorrow.
Report in later with further up date on Nieuport and Archie the Cocker!!

Not wishing to hijack your build thread but this is what was said about mine.
My Nieuport 17
Just little to much on the silver side, it was doped, not dreed in alu.But still I´m impressed off this build
