Phenomenal! Truly some kind of dark magic...!

Absolutely brilliant work. Do you have any work in progress pictures or a build log somewhere?

Cheers!

Hi Brad, thank you!   :D.   Iím doing a write up on the build and trying to pack as much how-to info in as I can.  Iím going full speed on a couple of Nieuports now too.  I might have a few questions about the N17s to put to the resident experts soon.

I hope you do a bomber or one of the large sea planes in 1/144. That would be awesome.

Hard to believe that your DH2 is only 144th scale - you could very easily (if you just show pictures with no scale detail) be fooled into thinking this is much larger ...........

Absolutely mindblowing, stunning work

Thanks everybody! ;D ;D

Please let me know who is publishing your book so i can make sure i reserve a copy.

It's coming out through Fonthill Media.  Still a ways to go yet though and a few more types to make for it.

Here's a few earlier shots that were taken along the way.   :)

When I go to the beach there are still lots of hunky 1/700 ship modellers, just waiting to kick sand in my face   :-[

The engine wasn't too bad.  It was the hand-scribed Lewis drums that almost did for me.  I've had bigger pieces of grit caught in my eye!
