scalemates wooooow!
3. March 2013 at 17:15:05
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!

Frank Krause And pic. 5 - have a look at the pic, then read the caption...

Steve Wilson Awesome Mike absolutely awesome!!! sheeesh!!!
3. March 2013 at 18:08:05
Jens simply beautiful, perfectly convincing, absolutely worth seeing, like all your models
3. March 2013 at 18:49:13
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.

3. March 2013 at 22:02:04
George Bacon Beautiful, beautiful work! However, it looks like one of the spark plugs is loose ;)
3. March 2013 at 23:46:25
Dirk Heyer One of my favorite vintage biplanes! This type is on my to do list... :) as many other wonderful models :D :D
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?
4. March 2013 at 07:37:02
Alexander Aristides Cronvall I know nothing about planes. but that plane is beautiful ! WOW !
4. March 2013 at 07:55:41
Michel Huijghe Amazing concidering how many wires there are. I think you made all your models from your stash to show it to us. :)

Choppa Nutta A lazy evening in and time to root around around
gorgeous old beauty :)
11. March 2016 at 23:33:33
Mike Grant I told you not to call me that, Choppa.
11. March 2016 at 23:35:19
Choppa Nutta haha, I'm so sorry, back to calling you "ravaged young hag" is it ? ;) :D :D lol :D
11. March 2016 at 23:38:45

12. March 2016 at 00:14:29

12. March 2016 at 02:16:16

12. March 2016 at 13:49:22
Jean Pierre CULIS-FERY Whaou! It's far upstairs from my building skills! Great!
15. March 2016 at 06:34:18
Soeren . Awesome work! I could never do anything like that.
15. March 2016 at 06:47:58
Pierre-Christian Baudru Great job Mike !
15. March 2016 at 06:50:17
Ben STONE Mike, how come the top port roundel stops at the trailing flap?
15. March 2016 at 07:06:31
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 :)
15. March 2016 at 07:13:27
Lex Jassies If you had told me it was 1/32 scale, I woud have believeth it. What a beauty!
15. March 2016 at 07:49:59
Ben STONE That's plausible I guess Choppa.
15. March 2016 at 13:09:28
Cristian Bordina I'm speechless, your model is of a beauty and precision without equal. :)
15. March 2016 at 13:13:59
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 at 14:31:14
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.
15. March 2016 at 16:01:13
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 at 16:15:06
Erik Leijdens Very impressive once again. Rigging is amazing Mike
15. March 2016 at 22:13:59

By the way, how did you make it?
16. March 2016 at 18:58:39
Carsten Gurk Amazing, just amazing! The DH.2 was always a dream model of mine, but that rigging is beyound my eyes and fingers.
14. July at 18:23:42
Neuling A work of art!
15. July at 15:02:29
Agustin Prellezo It is brilliant! That plane is also in my wishlist. But I am a bit afraid....
15. July at 15:42:03
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
