Eduard 1/48 Airco DH2
« on: February 10, 2019, 08:08:01 PM »
Hello
I present you my Airco DH2. This is the Eduard kit at 1:48, it was piloted by William Curphey. The pilot was shot down in April 1917.







Have a good day
Gerard

Oh I DO love a pusher with all those wires! That is a really well made and rigged model - first class in every way.

Really beautiful DH2. The rigging looks great and the paintjob and weathering are awsome.

The DH2 is one of my favourite models, for a long time the first one. You made an excellent one from Eduard kit, I like painting and rigging.

Very nice model Gerard, and one of my favorite aircraft from the period as well. Great to see your work here on the Forum and I look forward to seeing more.
