A couple really stunning DH2s, Paul and Des.  I've studied both of these beauties for quite a while to prep me for building mine.
Cheers,
Bud

  Hello All,
Here's my very first scratch building project an Airco DH.2 in 1/48 scale for the last century.










 Thanks for looking at this blast from the past. As always any and all comments are welcomed and much appreciated.
Highest Regards,

Gregory, this is, without a doubt, my absolute favorite of all of your fantastic models.  I'm still too intimidated to build the excellent Eduard kit, I can't imagine scratching this kite.
Cheers,
Bud

  Bud,
Actually she's kind of crude by today's standards with clunky struts and details. But all and all not too bad for a first effort from many many years ago. I certainly wish I had all the reference materials I have now for the type back then. Thank you for your more than kind comments my old friend. Give that Eduard DH.2 a shot as I have no doubt you'll build one heck of a beautiful DH.2. They're not as intimidating as you'd think.
Highest Regards,
Gregory Jouette

Nice scratchbuild GAJouette!
Not something I would dream of doing.
I'm too embarrassed to post my old models - kudos to you!

   Paul,
Thank you for generous kind comments my old friend. I've followed your projects for years now, so take it from an Old Dromer and fellow listee you have absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about. Please do bring over any old project you'd like after all your gallery at wwi-models.org is full of many outstanding builds. Again many thanks my old friend I very much appreciate your comments.
Highest Regards,
Gregory Jouette

Greg,
  I missed your contribution to this thread somehow after I  commented on the first two builds. 1/48, a DH2, and scratch built, not only gutzy but pretty to behold. Not a project my skills would allow me to tackle, you did a marvellous job and despite her age, she's a timeless beauty!  Nice Work! :)
Cheers,
Lance

Excellent scratch build of the DH.2 Gregory, you were a very brave man tackling this particular aeroplane for your first scratch build, it turned out beautiful, a real credit to your building skills.
