Very nice one, and I have an additional point of interest in Barker's plane as he flew this one on the italian front. Well done.
Ciao

Tom,

That is stunning !   The wood panels, the metal cowling, the prop...  Well done, all the way around.

Beautiful build uncarina!  You've done a wonderful job.

PS:And yes, I too was quite enamored with that Revell Sopwith Camel as a kid when I got it in '71 or so. Rigged it with black sewing thread filched from my mother's sewing machine. I was so proud!  ;)

WD,

Thank you! I bet your Revell Camel turned out better than mine. I had to use the Testors non-toxic cement with the orange smell. Took forever to cure!

Cheers,  Tom
