  1. Great job for your first biplane and choosing the se5a must have been challenge if you have tackled rigging before .......

     

    Funny enough I am working on precisely the same kit in the same boxing.   How did you find getting the cockpit structure together onto the lower wing?

     

    I ran into some difficulties here and was forced to pull the cockpit structure apart to get it on the lower wing.

  2. Thanks, gents -

     

    One thing I forgot to mention regarding rigging.

     

    This has been mostly rigged using fine elastic thread.  However, the undercarriage (molded to scale) is really too weak without being strengthened in this area.  I therefore used nylon dark grey coloured sewing thread to rig in this area. This prevents the model wobbling.  All eyelets and tubes are homemade and model painted by brush.

  3. All,

     

    another great kit from WNW - apart from the lower wing, this kit goes together very well.  To get the lower wing on it is necessary to trim away some of the cockpit structure under the cockpit floor.  Great decals that are really easy to use although the version I chose has a lot of lozenge fabric decals to apply.

     

    No much else to say on this one so pictures below:

  4. Thank you all kindly, gentleman.

     

    Unfortunately, the model broke beyond being salvageable.  In any case, I'm not got with diorama work anyway ..........

    Beautiful work but sorry to hear the Fokker had a major mishap. Is it salvageable?

     

    I have the 1/72 version of the Roden D.VII but I'm slightly apprehensive of it as I've heard it's an absolutely blighter to put together.

    Hello Smithy,

     

    It can be a bit tricky (I have built the roden dvii in this scale) but is certainly not impossible.  The major problem is that the lower wing does not fit with the fuselage.   I overcame this by cutting lower wing in half the using a section of plastic to fill the gap then filler to tidy it all up.

     

    This little kit looks good when complete.

     

    Regards

  5. Afternoon all -

     

    Just posting some pictures of a couple of models I completed earlier this year.  I've only now decided to post these up as I originally did not consider them my best work and I had lost a bit of my mojo which only now starting to return.

     

    These are the Eduard Sopwith Camel (weekend Edition) with some decals used from a previous build:

    I really am going through a clumsy phase at present - as soon as I finished taking these pictures, I manage to drop the DVII smashing it to bits ............   Annoyed I am!

     

    Appreciate any constructive comments

     

    Regards
