Well after much frustration and it still put up fight to the very end . A few glue errors but at this point it really doesn't matter just glad that it's finally completed . Not my best ...far from my best , but here is a few photo's while I wait for the camera batt's too charge .

Looks real fine Terri. Seeing what you went through with it has been an inspiration to me and kept at least one stalled project out of the bin :-)
Congratulations on a truly fine bit of modeling.

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

Awesome results from a kit that challenged you to bring out the best in it...and you! Loved following your build!

Excellent result T. Congrats on bringing it successfully home.
Like you I found this kit a real pig and also was just glad at the end to get the damned thing finished. Ace.

Not bad at all  8)  The unusual subject and finely done - one to adorn the collection for sure.

Finally!
Great effort and to me a great result! Not every model can be the best ever, but they can still be satisfactory in a number of different ways.

Thank you all for the very kind comments  :)

Yes , even though if put up one hell of a fight a lot of that was caused by me as soon as the sanding stick hit the interior thinning it out ...

When the error in the left side wing root was finally notice I'm glad that I corrected that even though I had to re-sand things down and raid the spare decal box to get back on track , it turned out a little better then before .

Will have a few shots up later this evening .

Even if you are say that this is not your best - it is clearly a Pfalz Dr.I So mission accomplished! 8)
It is a nice looking model, but like Ken I hope for a charged camera battery soon for more pictures.

I'm allowed to dream? A plastic kit in 1/48 of this bird!

Cheers,
