Another micro-masterpiece from you, William.
I have exhausted my superlatives for your models.

That's amazing. If it weren't for the matchstick I'd think this was a 1/48 kit.

I couldn’t say it better.

Just incredible detail in this tiny scale - you could easily be fooled into thinking this was much larger scale if only viewing pictures .......

Thanks chaps. I'm glad I reached "1/48" scale. The goal is to one day make one that passes for an okay-ish 1/32 kit : )

I reckon you've already done that a few times already!

    Just noticed I hadn't added mine here, same Kit and markings as RAG III's beauty, The Copper State Ni. XVII early.









     I didn't do a Build Log on this one. I struggled with a few alignment problems early on but overall it's a lovely Kit.
Cheers,
Lance

Very nice. The Nieuport XVII also looks pretty in camo.

I tend to prefer early Noops in silver, but that's a rather fetching scheme. Lovely work!

Lovely Nie, Lance. I tend to avoid the camo ones as they usually don't have upper wing roundels, (which, like WW2 Russian aircraft, I feel makes wings look very bare!) but your N17 looks terrific.

Beautiful, Lance, really beautiful. That's essentially the scheme I’m contemplating for my once and future N.16, and seeing yours just makes me want to get going on it. Unfortunately it won't be here for another couple of weeks :-/
