This is a magnificent example of scratch building Ken.  Your details are very well rendered and bring this model to life.  Outstanding work! ;D  I am thoroughly enjoying it!

Best regards,

Bob

Fill up with fuel, start the engine and fly away - so real!

I must say this is one of the Nicest scratch built bi planes I have seen! Tremendous work in all aspects!
