Started this one a few month ago and lost my modelling 'mojo' for a while but got back in to the build over the Christmas/new year holiday season

More done today

 

Wing struts in place

I have the upper wing on now but can't photograph it as the model is upside down on the bench, whilst the cement and joints set.

 

I'll try and update tomorrow.

Thanks, never built a WnW or a WW1 plane in this scale before.

 

I'm going with the French Navy option, thus the fuselage colour not being the normal dark brown colour that seemed to be the norm with RFC

 

I'm trying to find out if the prop was a one piece unit or of laminated construction.
