Nice, Once I finish my RE-8, I'll try my Fee as well. Are you doing a night bomber?

I've hemmed and hawed about the version--I did my Early Fee as a daytime fighter/escort, and part of me wants to do another one.  But the options are limited with the Late kit (I don't really want to do Richtofen's first victim or a flying school a/c, interesting as those are).

 

So I'm thinking the 100 Squadron night bomber is the way to go, though it doesn't have the cool rear-mounted MG.  I did notice the built kit on the WNW website does have it, so maybe I'll stick it on anyway.

 

Cheers,

Heck, I'd even go with Genie rockets for those real stubborn targets...

Hah.  No, I haven't given up on this/forgotten about it but I have been distracted by lots of other projects.

 

Going to get back to this this weekend and hopefully post some pix of progress to date.

 

Still hemming and hawing about doing the night bomber v. another daytime fighter.  I really like both variants, especially the ones with the rear-firing acrobat Lewis gun.

 

Stay tuned.

After consideration, I'm doing this one up as an 11 Squadron FE-2 using option "B" from the kit.   Rather than making it the training squadron, I'm backdating it to the operational aircraft--which means adding armament, but not too much else.  The whole thing will eventually be mounted on a board with the crew doing their "which way is Pozières?" preflight discussion.  Might add a figure or two on the ground, but we'll see.

Tim, with this GB now officially drawn to a close, do you want me to move your thread over to the WiP forum?
