When I received the e-mail at about the same time the postman showed up :D
I can only echo PrzemoL's opinion, it looks great. The Nieuports looked great as well, but this does look like it's even better at first glance. I don't have this very often, but this model makes me want to clear the modelling desk and start snipping parts off sprues immediately...

Hi all,
Still awaiting delivery in the UK of my pre-order.
Weird as deliveries in the UK are arriving, European are arriving, even Japan orders are arriving.
Not mine yet though  :-\

Same here Mike. Tracking has been saying ‘item sent abroad’ since 12 March, with no further updates.
Thought it was only the doctors and nurses on strike (justifiably).

Good news Mike will it be bumped to the top of the batting order? I'm so excited to see this one built up.

Hi Richie,
Yes as soon as the Hannover Cl.II is finished.

I'm to build the Bristol Scout C for Theo Willford.
Theo along with David Bremner (owner and pilot) and his brother Rick researched and over 14 years built the only airworthy Bristol Scout (1264).
David's passion was to build his Grandfathers Scout 1264 that he flew during WW1.
F.D.H. Bremner flew with No.2 Wing (RNAS) from Dec 1915 to Aug 1916, at Imbros, off the Gallipoli peninsula, and at Thassos, a Greek island off the coast of Bulgaria.
David was also heavily involved with Edgar and his team at Copper State Models, in creating an accurate model of the Scout.

I'm going to see David and 1264 when they fly at a show at the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden, Bedfordshire, UK.
That'll give me a chance to see and photograph 1264 close up and to actually sit in the cockpit (I'm the same height as David at 6' 3").
So now I'll need to build two Scouts, as I'll want one for my collection,

Mike

That's going to be a great day out at Old Warden Mike.

Here is a link to some photos on this website of some reference photos I took for my scratch build of 1264 a few years ago.

https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=11308.0

If you click on any of the images it should take you to my album on Flikr which has more pictures. Feel free to download and use any of the photos if they are at all helpful.

The book Rebuilding Grandad's Aircraft is fantastic and the DVD is well worth watching too.

Glad you like them Mike, I just bumped the topic back to the top of the Aircraft page.

Anybody else wanting to use them for their build please feel free to grab any you would like.

I can only echoe what is already said: Mine arrived last week and it just looks breathtaking.
