Wow, Mark!  She's stunning!  When did you do this one?  I don't recall seeing her before.
Cheers,
Bud

Thanks Bud and Robert:

I built it January 2012.  I saw a picture of one a modeler did for a show in England I think.  I was blown away by it and had to do it.  What a great kit and what great decals by Pheon!

Mark,
   Looks spectacular compared to "Op" schemes. Nicely done hardly suffices...........

I thought I had posted these earlier on. Thought I'd add a few pics to the Thread, my WNW Pup representing "Nick" Carters' Pup with Naval 3. I did a lot of digging to confirm the red vs. black cowling and I was "gifted" with Nicks' immediate post war leather flying helmet which is displayed beside this model. Unless the Brisfit proves better this was certainly the nicest Kit and most pleasurable build I've ever done.







And last the Helmet with "Baby Mine"


Cheers,
Lance

Gorgeous Pup, Lance.  What a great treasure to have Nick Carter's helmet.
Cheers,
Bud

Bud,
   I feel very fortunate to have a piece of history such as this; particularly since "Nick" has always been a great hero of mine. It was gifted to me by a close friend whose Father used to share Scotch and cigars with Nick, Billy Bishop, and Collishaw amongst others between the Wars. Incredible stories Jack can relate, having met them all in his home as a youngster.
   I'll be passing it on to an Aviation Museum ultimately for all to enjoy. He wore it immediately post WWI while still serving.
Cheers,
Lance

Outstanding Pup Lance! I particularly like your treatment of the wheels, seat cushion and chipped paint effect. Very, very nice indeed.

Cheers,

Chris

Very nicely done Mark! Who says RFC marking schemes have to be boring? This is a very striking scheme.

I agree Chris:  This scheme blew me away when I first saw it.  There are a couple of other striking schemes on that sheet as well.   
Thanks Chris

Just looking at all of these models is great inspiration. Hopefully I can add a WNW version in CDL.

Here are some pics as completed:











There are more pics over in Completed Models.  I've really come to appreciate this aircraft even more, through building this model.  Keep posting your Pups folks!  Enjoy.
