Surprisingly straightforward, my favourite WNW kit to date, or is the Eindecker

Amazing, Antonio!  In 1/48 scale, this kite is tiny.  In 1/72, the nacelle must be the size of an aspirin.  You did a fantastic job on the rigging.  The thought of it gives me complete wind up.
Cheers,
Bud

I agree with Bud! Your added details, corrections, and yes, the RIGGING are first rate! Well done !

Thank you, colleagues!
At the moment I'd like to make one more DH.2, but in the 32nd scale.

This is my most complex model until now, a Eduard 1/48 D.H.2 Stripdown.

For more information and pictures see here:

One day I will also build the "normal" kit.

Cheers,

    Another I forgot to post here, the Wingnut Wings 1:32 Kit. I was honored with an IPMS Member's Choice Award and Silver Medal in class for this one at the Western Canadian Region Model Contest in 2015. Probably my favorite Model.







Cheers,
Lance
