  1. Since I’ve been told to self isolate while I wait for test results I’m not likely to get anywhere near the bench for a week or two , so on my way to my bedroom I snagged these three kits from my stash. I’ll cleanup the various bits ahead of time so when I can get back to the bench they’ll be ready for a serious assembly session. I already have a Pup and a Snark built and a triplane well advanced so will end up with a fairly comprehensive Sopwith fighter collection. Kit quality varies. The Dolphin is beautiful and comes with a PE fret for the fine detailing, which I’ll copy in 10 thou card as much as possible for the other two. I don’t have the premium edition which has an engine and metal exhausts but still a great kit. The Camel sits squarely in the middle, no PE but finely molded and a nice decal sheet. The Snipe is a short run kit and has some lovely white metal parts for the interior and the engine, which will probably be copied for the other two. The moldings while looking fairly accurate are the flashiest things I’ve ever seen and need a lot of cleaning up, but there’s a pretty good model in there trying to get out. As for colour schemes the Dolphin will probably be one of the kit schemes. Likewise the Camel. Still undecided on the Snipe no PC10 but I might opt for a PC12 scheme, I’m also toying with an all silver one or an interesting Russian scheme with black stars but I’m not sure of the accuracy of that one. Retrospectively decided to add a scratch built Swallow as the three kits have yielded a rudder, some wheels, an upper deck and a Cowl, most if the tricky parts to scratchbuild and I’ve been threatening to do one for ages along with a Salamander ( hmm will leave that one for later) There’s also a 1 1/2 strutter and two mr craft Camels ( bought as parts donors) in the stash, but again another build. Might be a slow thread but for the moment will be all I’m working on.
