I like the Indian head as well. I'm originally from Oklahoma. Tim

I had a jug period a few years ago

And build a few of these Academy kits back then - it's a nice little kit, and I'm happy to see people still build it despite the gorgious Tamiya kit appearing later on

You put a nice silver finish on yours, I love how it shines in the last picture

If I may comment on something - I think it is impossible for the pilot to climb in unless he is very very very slim, I made the same mistake with the antenna mast on my kit... happy.gif

Just like the perfect woman doesn't exist, I will never build a perfect model.

Your photo is really nice- Very NICE build. Of course you know how incredibly hot it can get inside a bubble canopy on a hot day-- I am sure they left the dome cracked open a bit to keep it cool. happy.gif

The silver finish came out beautifully, and the markings look great. Very handsome!

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.
