The camel has always been my favourite WW I aircraft. perhaps it was all those Biggles books as a kid :D.. So when WNW finally released a Camel (or 5) I figured it was time to build 1. This kit will be a number of firsts for me 1st WNW Kit First WW I kit First 1/32 kit I've got a nice pilot figure from blackdog which I'll try to paint to a reasonable standard. Other Aftermarket is a Barracuda seat, eduard steel belts and HGW Seat belts I've chosen the Australian Option (flown by a Kiwi) , purely as it will be easier to get rid of when I eventually want to move it from the cabinet. After a week or so here's where I'm at I realise stuff all of this will be seen I wanted to try out some techniques. The seatbelt is from HGW - it does look great but the pieces split easily when bending them, which was annoying. I've since found out that this was backing and should be removed.. Perhaps HGW should have added that little piece of info in the instructions .. I just glued it back together The Seat is from Barracuda Studios and the casting is amazing... But I don't think I'd bother using one again because the kit seat is already pretty nice, most of the seat is covered in the seat belt and the whole thing will be buried in the aircraft when I put the fuselage together. Wood effect is oil paints over Tamiya. I really enjoyed doing this and like the effects you can get. Details are painted with mainly Vallejo. Instrument panel is from the kit. The instruments are decals and the glass effect is done with drops of UV activated glue. I also added some extra copper wire to extend some of the pipelines. Rigging is Ezy line and invisible mending thread, I should have used plastic rod.... Turnbuckles are just paint.
