I'm having some rather big trouble with the cockpit... It almost completely disintegrated when I tried to put it into the two fuselage halves and the fuselage itself seems to be a bit on the narrow side.
I'm rebuilding the cockpit while it's base is already in the first fuselage halve.
Hope it helps.

This is getting a bit frustrating. I feel like every step I take to remedy one problem is creating two more.
Learning curve?!

On that kit I had to sand down the bottom and sides of the wood framework and thin the sides and bottom of the fuselage halves a bit but I don't remember it being too extreme. I'll have to thin the fuselage out when I start the Special Hobby 2-seater Nieuport.

Beautiful work so far on this E1, I have the same kit... Yours is a source of inspiration!

René "Lord Bilbo" Bartholemy
I have to admit that I'm a bit frustrated with this kit so far.
Ever getting the feeling that you got stuck at a certain point?
Well, this is where I am right now: the cockpit seems too big for the fuselage (or the fuselage is too small to host the cockpit), the base-plate of the cockpit doesn't conform to either the cockpit walls or to the fuselage halves, whenever I try to get a step forward, the thing (almost literally) explodes in my sausage fingers... And the worst part is: the fuselage's turtle deck is larger than the fuselage itself.
As if the two fuselage halves have been "cut" too narrowly. It could need a shim...
Oh, the joys of scale modeling! 😉

Watching with interest. What are the cobbles made from?

René "Lord Bilbo" Bartholemy
The strange thing is: I painted this about two or three years ago and it was much lighter. Dunno why it has become this dark in the mean time. I remember having used 7 different grey-brown paints to give it a realistic look.

The story so far (a bit of fluff):
Early 1917, in an effort to reach Aleppo, the Australian 1st Light Car Patrol organises a number of long range reconnaissance patrols to find suitable places for advances posts. Here, petrol, ammunition and all supplies that would be needed in the final raid would be stored.
Alas, one of the old and battered Ford T's the 1st LCP (Australian) inherited from their British counterparts broke down and is in dire need of repair. The driver and the officer are discussing the best course of action for the repairs :
- "Must of been the carburettor, Sir"
- "Don't be foolish corporal, can't you see that the gasket is blown? All that sand…"
- "Yes Sir, but, no Sir, you see, it can actually be both at the same time…"
and so on!
In the meanwhile, the two soldiers are "guarding the perimeter" (quite loosely) while chatting and sharing a canteen.
Unperturbed by all this, a goat seems to have found a green and leafy snack.

All in all, I'm quite happy with the result, even if I only see some errors or problems now that I have taken the pictures.
(Never mind the big piece of lint on the officer's hand, it never existed and you've never seen it. Dismissed!)

It took quite a while to finish this project, both concerning the actual work (I'd say about 60-80 hours) and the passing time (I was unable to work on it for a few month).

60 to 80 hours well spent. My only criticism is of the possible conversation. Australians are reluctant to call anyone "Sir" in an informal environment. The reply from the soldier to the Officer would have been more likely, "Oh for f**k sake mate, it's probably f**king both". "Doesn't matter anyway mate, thing's cooked it's goose anyway, beer time eh"!

6. June, 01:44
René "Lord Bilbo" Bartholemy
Well... for instance the fact that the model, as proposed in the instructions and as build, couldn't work even if powered by a very strong engine. There's something wrong with it (handles).
By the way, I just realised that your icon is the original of this kit... 😉
