OK, starting off with the Battleaxe kit, well....uuuuhmm cuz except for maybe a vacuform or the forthcoming Wingnuts kit....it's all there is out there. Now I've heard less than exemplary stories about this kit, so I had to check it out. At first, it was a big....MEH. But the more I got to fiddling with it, the better it got. It's a limited edition kit, so it takes a bit of massaging, but it's got LOTS of potential. (and a very scale outline according to my plans) COOL! More on all that as I go along. Here's what I'm starting with. (I cut almost all of the parts off the sprues for test-fitting)

I'll be making my own 5-color lozenge decals for this thing just for the coolness factor. Here's a color template of what I'll be using as a basis from Arizona Models. If they make them in 1/32nd scale I'll buy them.....if not I'll have to compensate and make my own using these as a pattern and finalizing the colors. More on this build as things progress! Later, Russ

Thanks Håkan! Hope they don't blow up when I put them in water! Ya know, I just visited the Wingnuts site for the first time last night Vaughn (WOW!), and they're going to be offering decals for sale soon. Ooooooh, that D-VII and Albatros D-V they have coming out might be nigh on irresistable! Hmmmm, that Sopwith Pup would make a smashing triplane conversion also. Ooooh my. Can't wait to get this build started, sooon,....very soon.
Yes, lets hope they come out with the Tripehound, I'd be all over that like a dog on a turkey dinner ! ...can you tell it's Thanks Giving ?..~burp~
The Roland looks awesome too !!..figures doesn't it ?..you go to all this work to do it yourself... and somebody comes out with it ! ...
You're doing good Lad, don't stop ! Cheers
