  1. My next project is an Academy Sopwith Camel F.1 partially inspired by @bigbadbadge and his recently completed Goblin. I also wanted to expand my knowledge of WW1 aviation and its aircraft and as is my wont, I'll do that through a project for the main site. The model is well known I think, so not much introduction is required and obviously I'll fill in the detail as we go. I have built only one biplane before this one, a PT-17 which I enjoyed; I did the rigging with stretched sprue for that one but I'm going to try Chris' method for the Camel. My subject will be an Australian Flying Corps Camel from No.6 Sqn. AFC in Minchinhampton in 1918. I choose this one primarily because it's got a kangaroo on it - you can never have too many 'roos on airplanes. There's a pic at The Australian War Memorial site showing the aircraft; The first thing that jumped out at me when I opened the box was the excessive ribbing on the wings and tail, so job #1 was to tone it down. I studied images of the Camel online and while some ribbing effect is visible on the wings, mostly on the undersides, it's quite subdued so I broke out the sandpaper and got to work... What they actually looked like... And the before/after on the wings... The after pic makes it look like the wing appear flat now, as if all the ribbing has been removed; it's actually nicely dished between the ribs and I've polished them up with some fine sandpaper to finish. My intention is to add a replication of the reinforcing tape seen in the bottom image in the composite above. I'll also need to fill those horrific ejection pin parks... That's it for now. Cheers; Mark. .
  2. "Far From Home" BE2e (A10817) 67 Squadron near Gaza 1917.
