All,

Well...the odyssey comes to a close and like a good long book, it's kind of sad to finally reach the end! This model gave lots fun and pleasure during the build even though it's nice to be done. I learned a lot and that will help with future builds.

I painted the cockpit frames, added a "waist window" Lewis, painted the stab struts and did some touch up painting. It's got some issues here and there and improvements could be made (like doubling up on flying wires and perhaps some more weathering...my rigging glue joints are a little blobby...).

Regardless, I hope you like the final product and thanks for all of the encouragement along the way.

Cheers.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
