How yeah and yeah &yeah. Beautiful work 👍
Thank you. A tough build. Really wish i had strengthened the main wing joints. I could not get them level. Next time!
Amazing!!! Phantastic build.
Great! Very colourful! And all that rigging... 👍
Amazing work, hard to believe that's 1:72
Gorgeous results 🙂 Total respect for your talents 🙂
Thank you all. Little tip - use varnish to stick the chequerboard on the main uprights. Impossible to stick otherwise.
Fantastic work and a simply stunning model!
Amazing!!! Phantastic build.

Well it certainly makes a change from 1/32.
I did some 1:520 biplanes, I found it kind of fun, but would not recommend rigging 🙂 I like your kingfisher a lot.
Thanks Ben. Yes its alright really. Very little detail in these but adding a little scratch build helps a lot. Painting is very tricky but just about possible. Been learning from the master Frank;
Love your stuff Frank.
Can I just point out that in pic 11 the deck is on backwards?
Thanks Chris. Just plopped it on to get idea of scale.

Very nice. I see new molds for Vc is quite good.
Top build with wonderful colors!
Thanks Alex and Neuling. Yes the new molding is very nice. Especially the cockpit which is now in sections. Panel lines are also deeper so survive several layers of varnish. Love these desert schemes. Good opportunity to play around with heavy weathering.
Very nice camo work

I think this is going to be a bit of a challenge. Least of all cleaning off all the excess sprue. Its a little crude but given the age, and the scale, it has possibilities. Inspired by Frank Spahr's superb rendition. Fantastic job. Dont expect to get that level of detail. Hats off!

Nicely done, as usual!
Thanks Spanjaard. David the fit was superb. No problems at all. Just fit the radiator before fixing on the engine cowling. The angle is pretty tight. Thanks very much Rui S and Tim Heimer.
Thanks Mike,lovely build.
Beautiful build, your rigging is superb Mike. 🙂
Thanks David and enjoy the build. Thanks Guy Rump. I used guitar strings again for the rigging. This kit was pretty easy as it goes. It has a split wing so could drill through from the top after fixing the wings in place. A real luxury!

Thanks very much Steve. As to suggestions well they are all great. Its a personal choice. Sadly Wingnut stopped trading about a year ago due to Covid. Maybe they will come back one day. Still plenty available second hand but prices can be sky high. Have a look at the Wingnut Wing Fans FB page. A great source of info and inspiration. Also good for picking up kits secondhand.
Thanks Jim J and Kerry Cox and Neuling. Yes they do reward patience. Very sad they are no longer trading. Lukgraph seem to be picking up some of the slack. Guess the market will pick up after Covid.
Silver Wings are also doing some lovely 1/32 kits;
Thanks Mike I'll check out the page
Excellent work 👍
Thanks Rui S.

Impressively detailed 1/72 build! Very careful work!👍
Yes David you can see a lot of the future Hurricane in the Demon. Well spotted Lukasz. The problem is that if you mask over the metal foil the foil gets pulled off when you remove the masking. So its hand painting only without masking. Thankyou Dave, Clifford and Neuling. Took a while but im pleased with it. Used old guitar strings for the main rigging. o.oo3 gauge. Just the right thickness and not too much sag.
Cool idea using old guitar strings for rigging, I have used them for oxygen hoses on a 1/32 F-4 build, will have to try them for rigging on a biplane.
Hi Clifford. Yes, they are really useful if a little fiddly.
