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...

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
