Wow, I remember me commenting many more recent builds like Franks miraculous strip down Airco before, but I wasn't a member of this forum yet when Lance built his fantastic DH2. How beautifull! A real showstopper.
I am getting nervous, my fingers start to scratch the table... I have to look for my DH2 in my stash...

Frank,
The stripdown DH2 is amazing! Beautifully done!
Lance,
Great to see this winner of such well deserved awards! Tempts me to get one when it appears again  ::)

Lance, your painted one is great and I would be more then lucky, if my unbuild "normal" D.H.2 would look one day like yours!

Cheers,
Frank

Thank you Frank! There's actually very little paint on her; I used Aviattic CDL and PC.10 Fabric Decals top and bottom and also for the fabric portion of the fuselage nacelle.

Thanks Rick and Steve. As I said, my favorite model to date, it's so ugly it's pretty!
Cheers,
Lance

Your DH2 is a work of art, Frank .......

I'll add mine to the other fine collection of DH2 models here.   Although not up to the high standard of others, I consider this one of my better models to date.

Before anyone else thinks mine is from Wingnut Wings, I have added to the scale.

Dave, nice one! Eduard or Roden?

Cheers,
Frank

Thanks Rick!

Frank - you thank you.  Yes, I forgot to add that this is the 1/32 Roden kit.
