Group WWI build on another site.

Few parts, lots of flash and very little surface detail

Just a quickie, no rigging. Single red colour.

Box art:



Sprues:



Flash: (LOL)

Definitely, do all u can. At 1/48 and not too many parts, the more done to it, the better. It will be a very cool build in red. Luv the covered nose "aero" look! Go for it!

With you on the nose. A streamlined fuselage compared to some of its contempories- "built in headwinds"
Fighters wouldn't look that sleek until Hawkers gorgous Fury of the '30s.

Enough of my ramblings, lets 'guilt trip' Al into rigging it!

I'm going with the "rig it" theme of the tread so far here...

Looks to be a nice little project Al, apart from that little bit of flash (ahem) .... front seat, popcorn, feet up and watching this one.


PS, i have a DH II next on my bench, now that's got some rigging for me to screw up big time !!!!

Sorry to disappoint you guys but there will not be any rigging, 'cos there is not going to be a WIP.

I glued the fuselage together then had to seriously modify the tail just to get it to fit, never mind look right.

Then on to the tail plane. Well this is just plain outrageous:



And how about this for a fit on the cowl:





Then I realised that there is no under wing detail. It  looks like the under halves are missing but according to the instructions, all the parts are present:



All in all, it's not making for the 'quickie' build I need right now, so it's going back in the box until I have more time available.

All is not lost though, lookout for this one in a few days time:

Things like that happen on the Dark Side Al.

I'll have to check up on the "Glencoe Model" company. Fit and finish seem to need improvement. I wonder if they ever tried building their own kits!

Wow that kit needs serious work. Good idea to box it up.
