A boy's dream [Sopwith Camel diorama] WNW 1:32
« on: February 05, 2019, 07:26:28 PM »
Hello friends,
I decided to take part in this memorial groupbuild with a little diorama with the light blue Canel from Wingnut Wings.
Exept the HGW seatbelts and Barracuda seats it will be OOB.



I will start with this beauty in the next days and let you know about the latest progress.
Bye,
Manni

Some people really shouldn’t be allowed to enter..

It’s not fair on the rest of us!  ;)

Manni,
    With your talents to "set a scene" I suspect we're in for a real treat when this one comes together. Looking forward to following along on this one!
Cheers,
Lance

Excellent choice, Manni!  This is one of my favorite Camel schemes.

Thanks a lot, guys,
please don't set your expectations too high. This project is getting a bit simpler. I also think that my skills in painting and detailing models are not as good as you think. Nevertheless, I hope we have a lot of fun with this groupbuild. That's exactly what Des would have liked.
Bye,
Manni

Don’t be so critical, Manni. I know we will be blown away again by your diorama!
Best regards

You choosed a very attractive livery, and I'm sure this will be a great build to follow.

Hello my friends,
I don't want to make excuses here. I simply did not have the strength to complete this project in the given time.
I hope you don't think I'm just going to give up memory of Des, but I will definitely finish this project after the planned timeframe.
At the moment I have cleaned, deburred and prepared all parts for painting.
In the next three weeks you won't hear much from me, because I'm going on holiday with my wife and daughter. I hope to return with a lot of new model Mojo.
Bye,
Manni

Have a great holiday Manni. I trust I speak for others here, but when you get back to the bench we will again get to enjoy seeing your amazing models!

Cheers
