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!

simply beautiful, perfectly convincing, absolutely worth seeing, like all your models

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.

Beautiful, beautiful work! However, it looks like one of the spark plugs is loose

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?

Amazing concidering how many wires there are. I think you made all your models from your stash to show it to us.

Awesome work! I could never do anything like that.

Mike, how come the top port roundel stops at the trailing flap?
15. March 2016 at 07:06:31
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
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
15. March 2016 at 13:09:28
I'm speechless, your model is of a beauty and precision without equal.
15. March 2016 at 13:13:59
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
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
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
Very impressive once again. Rigging is amazing Mike
15. March 2016 at 22:13:59
very nice painting effects on the linen, very nice model all together... as usual
16. March 2016 at 09:41:50
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.

A wonderful job, especially on the rigging...
By the way, how did you make it?
16. March 2016 at 18:58:39
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
It is brilliant! That plane is also in my wishlist. But I am a bit afraid....
15. July at 15:42:03
@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
15. July at 18:05:35
Wow, a seriously beautiful build! The rigging is amazing, so many cables in flawless harmony
Also love the brass blade-protectors on the propeller!
16. July at 20:43:52
That's beautiful ............love it. takes your breath away . Well done
17. July at 02:05:32
