Very very nice. I have always been shy of building these types but they are fascinating. This looks great.

I like it, but I  wonder if you might have shortened those cabane struts a bit too much.

Wow, that's simply stunning work Guy!  Every detail about it is exceptional.  Please tell my you used decals for the red and black on the landing gear; painting them would be tremendously difficult.

 

Cheers,

Yes it does doesn’t it! Incredible how heavy and draggy she must have been but the pilots still flew them in WW2 against zero fighters...

I did Mark, but I cut them short so as to have a gap at the front then painted in the gap. If you can conform them to perfectly fit on that curvature - you’re a better man than me!

Superb work. Makes me wish I'd bought one at Telford.

 

 

Yep, I was seduced by it at Telford. Not normally my scale or era but it just hooked me...

The rigging really wasn’t that bad - I make holes through the lower wing and just pull it through. The tough part for me was the upper wing going on - I always struggle with that, but replacing the struts makes that a lot easier.

I only shortened the cabane struts to match the outer ones, so they should be spot on.

 

thanks for all the comments!
