  1. Hi, Late on parade again but as my Dad used to say We've arrived and to prove it we're here. Been after this kit for years and finally nabbed it a few months ago. It's smaller than I expected but as it's a single seat fighter that's not surprising. Looks nice on the sprues and have started cleaning the parts up. Regards, Steve
  2. Looking good, P. Good idea with the nose cross. I've got a Vac Wings Lohner L which is a similar, smaller design. It's partially built but too far gone to enter here but it has a couple of decals for the nose cross. Will let you know whether they survive the inevitable rough handling. Can I ask what type of engine you have scratched?? Regards, Steve
  3. Beautiful job. I take it the Caproni Triplane is somewhere on the horizon. Regards, Steve
  4. Very nice. You've got the ribs to a tee. Regards, Steve
  5. Please delete this. It should have gone to the Gallery. It is now so not needed. Regards, Steve
  6. Sopwith Camel Trainer H823, 43 Training Depot, Chattis Hill, November 1918 Not a bad kit, the transfers are a huge improvement, but the forward upper decking and lower wing location needed a little attention. Nothing drastic just a bit of extra filing. Regards, Steve Regards, Steve

  8. Just about finished and it is small. It's the same size as the single seat Camel. Here it is next to the Airfix 504K basic trainer. Apart from the upper decking which was a simple fix it went together very well. Regards, Steve
  9. Starting to come together. Couple of scratch windscreens and painted the tricolour stripes on the rudder. Top wing fitted the old fashioned way with MK 1 eyeball. Regards, Steve
  10. I've been busy with other things but have managed to get the remedial work done. Filing and superglue seem to have sorted the upper decking and I've got the lower wing to fit in the cut out slot. Again just patient filing to get the wing level. No photos as I haven't re-painted yet. Regards, Steve
  11. The fuselage is the typical Roden multi part affair designed to facilitate multiple versions. Good idea except this time the forward cockpit decking is narrower than the lower fuselage. You can just see the grey line in the photos. I’m going to try and file the lower to match and run some CA into the joint. The lower wing cut and the leading edge will also need a bit of attention. Not a big problem but the upper decking is disappointing. Regards, Steve
  12. Lovely job Steve. Let take a moment to thank the modelling gods for the creation of lozenge decals. My lozenge crisis was hand painting an Airfix Hannover. Once was enough. BTW I think von Hippel survived both the crash and two world wars. Regards, Steve
  13. A little spurt of progress. Been painting the main parts and then assembled the engine. Will be OOB so I’m happy enough with the kit part. The fuselage is composed of four parts which means the cockpit innards are located from the top before the upper deckings are added. I’m going to add a crew from spares so I’ll keep the instruments panels, rudder bars and columns for something that has a more open cockpit. Regards, Steve
  14. Hi, Got this kit by accident. I ordered a Comic night fighter but when I opened the box there was a trainer inside. Decided to keep it so there's no box art just the parts etc. Regards, Steve
