Frank Krause Not from this world...! How did you manage such clean rigging? What did you use for the wires? The comparison of the pilot's seat before and after is unbelievable. Agree with Pascal and Tim - wooooow!

Albi Hitz come on !!!! I'm gonna sell all my stuff and starting something else ...
Awesome work mate!
Jens simply beautiful, perfectly convincing, absolutely worth seeing, like all your models

Mike Grant Thanks for the kind comments. @Frank, it's rigged using a combination of stretched sprue and ceramic fibre for the rigging. I replaced the twin booms with carbon-fibre rod as I felt the styrene ones might bend over time.

Stefan Suessemilch staggering Mike.... what a professional work, not only the models but also the pics! Thanks for sharing them with us.
George Bacon Beautiful, beautiful work! However, it looks like one of the spark plugs is loose

Dirk Heyer One of my favorite vintage biplanes! This type is on my to do list... as many other wonderful models
You did a fine and absolutely effective paint job!
That`s scale modelling at his best!
Did you post your DH 2 on Great War Aviation Forum?
Ben STONE Mike, how come the top port roundel stops at the trailing flap?
15. March 2016, 07:06
Choppa Nutta if you look underneath that wing you can see the rest of the roundel, it's as though that aileron was replaced from another planes upper right aileron and put on the upper left wing to replace a damaged one,
I get the feeling there might be a real world story behind that slightly unusual feature
Total guess but I reckon Mike have the answer to that curious feature

Lex Jassies If you had told me it was 1/32 scale, I woud have believeth it. What a beauty!
Cristian Bordina I'm speechless, your model is of a beauty and precision without equal.

Choppa Nutta I did wonder myself Ben, I guess we'll have to wait for Mike to provide us with the answer
15. March 2016, 14:31
Mike Grant Thanks guys Choppa's explanation is correct. The upper and lower wings (and therefore ailerons) were interchangeable on the DH-2, so a damaged upper aileron could be replaced with the lower one from another aircraft.

Choppa Nutta very pragmatic of the designers to build the plane that way
Is there a story behind this particular plane that inspired your build of it Mike ?
15. March 2016, 16:15
Erik Leijdens Very impressive once again. Rigging is amazing Mike
15. March 2016, 22:13
Bart Goesaert very nice painting effects on the linen, very nice model all together... as usual
16. March 2016, 09:41
Martien Lourens You continue to amaze. again a very beautiful model out your hands, Mike. Especially with the rigging work. That's a bar too high for me. Well done
Agustin Prellezo It is brilliant! That plane is also in my wishlist. But I am a bit afraid....

Bart Goesaert Nice work!
@Augustin: Why? You can only give it your best shot. Don't be intimidatied by looking at the results of one of the best modelers around. Look, try, ask and learn... And your work is also good... Better then mine, that's for sure
