Thanks Weldingrod. I think it's in the 'not bad' category. I think the camera is my friend in some ways :lol: . There are certainly things I'd do differently on the next one but surprisingly I'm unsure exactly what 'the next one' is going to be this time. I have a number of lovely kits in the stash but none of them are calling loudly yet.
Peace.

The heavens were the grandstands and only the gods were spectators. The stake was the world, the forfeit was the player's place at the table, and the game had no recess. It was the most dangerous of all sports and the most fascinating. It got in the blood like wine. It aged men forty years in forty...

As expected a little beauty and a good airfield base to boot. I really like it mate. I have to agree with these, they're very small when you build them. 1:24 I reckon.

Cheers Bish. I reckon 1/24 might be great until you start building the bigger types...check out the Gotha G.IV and the FE.2bs by Wingnuts...they'd be huge in 1/24.
Peace.
