"Lord Flasheart : The first thing to remember is: always treat your kite, like you treat your woman! Lieutenant George : How, how do you mean, Sir? Do you mean, do you mean take her home at weekends to meet your mother? Lord Flasheart : No, I mean get inside her five times a day and take her to heaven and back. Captain Blackadder : I'm beginning to see why the suffragette movement want the vote. Lord Flasheart : Hey! Any girl who wants to chain herself to *my* railings and suffer a jet movement gets *my* vote!" Right then lads! , and ladies for that matter....on to the next build, and the first of 2020!! As part of my Christmas haul, my brother gifted me the rather splendid Revell 1/48 scale Sopwith F.1 Camel.....I suspect that those in know on this fine forum is aware that this is basically a re-boxed Eduard kit (even has Eduard on the spru!) This is the first time I've build a string bag and any attempt at modelling rigging as well. I currently have MIG Ammo's 0.03mm rigging on order and on its way for later on. I did also read a lengthy post by a fellow member here on how to rig correctly. Most helpful, but I have forgotten whom it was, so my apologies. Anyways....one with the show! The kit in question and the splendid box art too! Full colour instructions too Lovely set of sprue's there.....the paint pots were for the previous build and have since been updated for the Camel. Some clear parts too for the wing inspection panels Nice little decal sheet for 2 Camel variants too. Variant 1 - of No. 139 Squadron, Villaverta, Italy July 1918 Variant 2 - of No. 73 Squadron, Ruisseauville, France July 1918 I'm not entirely sure which variant I will go for yet,...a decision for later on. To help with the build, I found this fine publication in "The Works" just before new years to help with the finer details on the kit too. So far with the build I managed to prep and paint the inner walls of the cockpit, which took a while and a very steady hand, as well as making up the oil tank for the engine bulkhead. I'll dirty this up a little prior to installation. Next up on the instructions was the engine build. I'll be doing some reading on this to ensure it is painted up correctly. Any hints, tips or Flasheart quotes....all welcomed!
