1/72 B.E.12b

This is a combination of the HR resin kit for the nose, tailplanes, and a few bits, mated with the Airfix B.E.2c. The Airfix kit had somewhat finer molding details and was easier to use for the main airframe.

Cheers

Very impressive build and 1/72nd scale, too!

A very good conversion: the rigging is especially good. And as Rick has commented, it is in the Correct scale too!

A very nice model, with an impressive rigging in that small scale!
Looks on the pictures like quarter scale.

Cheers,

Missed this earlier, it's a real gem and appears of a larger scale. Very nice work, congratulations on a really beautiful model!
