Revell's ancient kit (1957!!) 1:28 scale kit molded in red which I probably should have just left it but I just could not get away without putting a coat (or three) of paint on it.  Red was harder to come out with than I imagined and the decals were very fragile (and not as opaque as I had hoped).

 

Did this kit for some local activities that will commemorate WWI in 2017.  I've never built a WWI plane before so the rigging was fun (and much easier thanks to EZ Line) and this seemed like an interesting subject.  Very basic kit and the decals are who knows how old, but it all worked out in the end.

The prop looks nicer than the kind of monotone image in the pics.  It has a gentle grain to it as I used a coarse sanding stick on it.

There we go!

That's a lovely little build, Chris! I can't believe how quickly you got this one together. Well done!

Thanks Kev!  Once you get the wings and the four or five cockpit pieces together, there is not much left!

Theo and Joe - thanks for your comments!  That would be a hoot!  I wonder if anyone makes a Snoopy Sopwith Camel model?  Mmmm......

Nice quick project! Turned out nice. I remember doing one of these in Werner Voss's markings way back in high school.

Wow. The Flying circus must have been a sight to see.

 

Great job! :)

The humble tambourine can be traced back over 5000 years. Now it is perhaps the most recorded instrument.

Check it out, during Roman games, there were always bands playing. A tambourine being involved.

What a gig! :)

Thanks Peter!  Quick build and I can see with a bit more time and a little bit more effort around the machine guns and especially the cockpit (not to mention actually running all of the rigging) this old kit could be a lot of fun.

 

In my temporary insanity I even looked at WnW WWI kit. Oh MY...  I see more of my money departing ways in the future.  I mean, how many Mustangs can one man build?  (and I'm on my 5th P-39/P-400 so maybe I'm due for a change of subject?).
