Definitely one of the most challanging projects ever.
The hardest part was keeping the dihedral of the upper wing and the proper geometry.
Anyway, I`m extremely happy it`s finished.

Wow! That is extremely impressive! Build, finish and weathering look spot on to me. Would look even better on a nice grass base. Stunned!

 

Cheers

Impressive model !

 

A genuine question because I don't know a lot about WWI aircraft: blue forward on the fin flash ? I thought it was red forward...but the world is full of exceptions..

As far as I know the blue was forward during the WWI.

Well, I can see why you found it challenging but you have made a superb job of the kit.

Right you are. I never noticed it. A quick search for English WWI planes shows the blue forward on the tails. I wonder when it they reversed the order.

 

Great build.

Excellent build. Worth all the effort you have put into it. The propeller wood effect is very well done.

Off the top of my head, I think it was about 1929/30.

This is just fantastic to see this built!  You have done a wonderful job and it looks beautiful.  I really wish someone would offer a decent injection mold in 1/48 of this plane but I doubt I will see the day.  This kit intimidates me for sure but it is tempting seeing what a great job can be done from your work.

I'm blown away by this.  An amazing model of the 'Bloody Paralyzer'.  All your efforts were worth it to produce this museum quality model.

Man, this is as perfect as it can be! I tried to build an Airfix O/400 in my fledgeling modelling years, and it was the only kit I ever gave up.
