The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

WnW Sopwith 2F.1 ShIps Camel.


Recommended Posts

During the time I’m completing my Corsair and Tempest V, I needed an on going project. 
 

So as discussed before, it sounds like there are a number of these Camels languishing in stash’s. So as this is 

my first WnW WW1 subject my thoughts why not do WIP showcasing my lack of skill in this genre. So please bear with me on this journey.

Jeroen did a review back way back when, here’s the link 

Here’s the box art and couple of first attempts

First out of the gate is the IP, it’s small but a lot of fun and fine painting and decaling.

Watch this space.......:D......Jeff you must have one of these in the stash?.....

Not yet, the rigging intimidates me, although I really would love one ( and especially the triplane )................ I remember seeing the real deal at Hendon in 1990, and have always loved them....

I'll be keeping a watch Phil as I've got the one I won in the raffle and any clues on how to rig these things will be appreciated.

Nice start on the instruments, etc. Looking forward to seeing how you tackle the woodgrain too!

Thanks Gus, the decals for the IP I had to use a jewellers loop to check the orientation. I have an idea for the wood grain.........

Fantastic! I am in. The ip looks beautiful.

 

I dreamed I was rigging a Camel. It was poignant because I too have one in my stash.

I am sure you will give everyone a great time watching this build, Phil. :thumbsup2:

Thanks Dale, I really think with so Camels sitting in stash’s a GB ought to happen.......:grouphug:

HANG ON, MAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTEEEEEEE!!!!!

 I keep telling everyone, existence is ALL ABOUT ME! 

I am not ready to  ride camel ride, let alone rig a  mechanical camel!

No fictional inteligence/character within my imagination may direct me.  They do not exist. Indeed, this conversation is simply myself talking to my very own self as another.

Therefore figment, you must wait. My reality is all that matters. No character within my solipsistic world may build a Sopwith Camel until I am ready. Let's say ten years from now.

All you chaterboxes speaking to me at once must settle down! That character telling me to run down George street butt naked was simply over reaching. I shall NOT run down George street Sydney naked until I am fit enough!

Brain, stop giving me orders! And if you do give me orders, do it one and a time. I simply cannot understand such a multitude of voices in my head all talking at once! 

Damn it! I can't get anything I want in this existence, even that Akubra hat company won't make me a pastoralist tin hat!

No matter how many restraining they take out! Akubra personnel must remember, they do not exist.

I hope this helps. :rtfm:

I am a child of Monty Python.
