Well, I thought it was finished--as I was taking the pictures I noticed the cabane bracing cables are missing--AARRGGHH!! Decals by Model Alliance. Anyway, FWIW, here it is:

Thank you sirs, for the very kind compliments!

No, it isn't 1/144 resin--LOL!

It's the Lindbergh reissue of the old 1/48 scale Inpact kit.

Well done, sir! What did you use for a finish and are those the kit decals?!?!

Thank you, everyone, for the positive comments!

The model was sprayed with Floquil Old Silver, then the metal panels on the forward fuselage were masked off, and the exposed surfaces were lightly sprayed with a flat coat. After removing the masks, the contrast between flat and bright creates the illusion of metal and doped fabric.

The decals are from Model Alliance's superb "Silver Wings" set (can't remember if they are from Part I or II--I have both). If you are at all interested in building RAF interwar airplanes, these sets are well worth the cost--they provide many colorful markings options for several different types.

That is possibly… no, that IS the most beautiful Bulldog rendition I've ever seen. Fantastic work!

Wow , thats a real stunner , i built that kit in the same markings a while back ( see pics below )

The model alliance sheet is as Boc says surpurb , gives you lots of options. incidently those markings are for Douglas Barders Bulldog in which he lost his legs.

Nice kit, where did you get it from

The kit has been released over the years under the Inpact, Life-Like, Pyro, and Lindbergh labels. Lindbergh is the most recent reissue--it shouldn't be too hard to find. Even the older issues can be found with a little bit of searching in the second hand market.

Hmm, I didn't post that one. :hmmm:

I suspect my 10 year old son has been busying himself with the family computer. :nono:
