Nice!
What's with the French style roundels on the box art, by the way?

Modified RNAS roundel at 1915 - previously it had no blue centre.
Eventually the RNAS used the RFC roundel.
The RFC had the normal roundel.

Thanks, Mike!
Copper State Models always do their „homework“ meticulously and thus very well!

At a slight tangent I highly recommend anyone interested in this kit to read David Bremner's book 'Rebuilding Grandad's Aircraft'

For me this is the most exciting model release for years. Nice choice of schemes, I'm looking forward to seeing the great modellers of this parish producing masterpieces from it.

I'm taking the credit for giving the modelling gods a gentle nudge  ;D

1/32 Scratch built Bristol Scout by Richard Williams, on Flickr

Richie

Apologies for being a bit of a pillock!

Richie,
Nice job! That is not the work of a pillock. Now, if you can ingratiate yourself further with the modelling gods, would you mind knocking out a 1/32 Halberstadt D type, please? 

Cheers

Syd
