Albatross D3 and Sopwith Camel Smer 1:48 fun builds.


Recommended Posts

Look away all WW1 aircraft experts as these two are not for the perfectionist.

Decals on the Camel great, but the Albatross worst I've encountered fell apart ... The crosses on top wing hand painted.   Looking at some ref though the crosses have been painted over so not entirely a disaster.

Oh well they look OK on the shelf in the summerhouse ...

You've done a good job here especially when you consider these kits are very dated, crude and flawed so well done!

 

Welcome to the world of WW1 aircraft - next step the joy of rigging !!

Cheers Dave,. I had actually bought some rigging line and did have the intention of trying it. Mig Ammo line, but can't find it anywhere, if I find think will save for a better kit to be honest..

They make good ornaments and a point of interest in their location but stand a good chance of getting damaged by guests, that's whenever we can have anyone around for drinks in the summer house...
