Simply gorgeous, Des.  Truly an inspirational build.  I hope to be joining you here soon with one of my own (as soon as Rowan releases the Barker sheet).

Des & Dave, what a beautiful pair of Snipes!  Funny thing is, I never really cared much for the Snipe until you guys opened my eyes with your very fne examples. :D  Now I can't wait to see more Snipes right here, and I've got one in the stash! ;)

Here's my Snipe - this is the Blue Max 1/48 scale kit, painted up to represent a machine of 4SQN Australian Flying Corps.  This one needed a few details added (like a scratch built interior), and is tricky because you need to do things like manufacture your own struts.  But overall the base kit is quite nice and accurate.

Hello, folks -

Sorry, not been on the forum for a while (a combination of a bit of work study and trying to move house resulting in a temporary loss of motivation) and just catching up with what's going on.

I'll jump and add my OOB, brush painted build of a post WW1 Snipe if there are no objections!

Regards

Dave

Great to see this incredible beauty again, Dave!  The fact that you've achieved such remarkable results through brush painting makes it all the more extraordinary.
So, you moved house, too?  Set me back 2 months, mate.  Love our new home, though.

Thank you, Bud/RAGIII -

Bud - not quite there yet with the house - currently in the process of going through all the legal what-not.   If all goes well, we may be in a position to exchange contracts by end next week.  If that happens, we may possibly move in by end August beginning of September.  When I do move, it will be interesting to see which of my built models survive ................!

How far are you moving?  Our move was only 35 miles, so I made several small trips in my pick-up prior to the BIG move.  Models and display cases made it in those trips with very minimal undercarriage damage to 2 models, easily repaired.  Hopefully, you can do the same.

Bud

Less than 3 miles would you believe - but I gain a better house with a garage and all round better area and easier car parking.
