  1. I'll be working back and forth between this and the Camel, as I can work on one while glue is drying on the other. I opened this over the weekend and got started laminating the keel last night... Wheee!
  2. This is the kit I've been sort of building up to. 1/16 scale skeletonized Sopwith Camel with all the bones and nerves exposed. All flight controls operational, nicely detailed engine and full rigging. The model as designed does not include the engine or gun cowlings - I'll scratch build those from aluminum sheet (should be interesting as I've not done that particular kind of metalwork in the past!). I'll also build some of the cockpit components as the white metal castings just don't look right. I'll try my hand at replicating wicker using wire-on-wire framing for the seat and I'll use real leather and silk where needed for other details. I have some thin glass sheets I can use for instrument faces - I'll try that first, and go to film if that doesn't work out. The engine will be more of a challenge, as (despite the size) some of the detail is a bit soft. I'll figure that out as I go, and will make it as close to the original as I can. I just opened the box yesterday - so y'all get to be present for the entire journey...
