Great looking model.  Shame the RFC couldn’t get over their monoplane fear.  Would have probably been a game changer on the Western Front.

Fantastic fabric effect, rib tapes and staining on the wings! Thanks for sharing the model.

Again! Yet one more magnificent model from your hands. And brings back my memories when I built mine of the same Moseley's example but in 72nd scale, and was learning the amazing history of this amazing and so underrated aircraft. Thanks a lot!

Nice Bullet, Mike.
I did the Alley Cat one in a more reddish PC10/12 as the Macedonian theatre made me think of brown tones, but your green one contrasts beautifully with the blue undersides. Very nice.
I used to have the autobiography of one of the Bullet pilots in the Middle East (Miles somebody, later flew for BOAC) and he certainly thought it could have done a lot of damage on the Western Front!
Seeing your excellent model, I'll need to add a Special Hobby kit to the futures pile.

Realistic looking results - weathering looks spot-on.  The base looks good, too.  Not the usual grassy field.

Very nicely done Mike. That fabric effect looks exceptional. I really appreciate when a model is displayed effectively with a couple of figures, and your project turned out perfectly.
Cheers,
Gary

Great build, Mike. One thing I can say, it must have been a real chore for a pilot to get in and out of that aircraft, especially with flying kit and all.
