I love your Camel! I won`t elaborate on your modelling skills cause it`s something beyond doubt... It`s one of the most "fancy" colour schemes for Camel and one of my favourite!
Best regards

Here's my Camel - Eduard 1/48.  This was built back in 2006 and was only my second WW1 model - I was very much still learning the skills of the trade.... :)

Judging by this Model, Brad, the "learning curve" of the skills of the trade was both steep and high; you certainly climbed it very successfully..........beautiful work!

This is my Academy 1/32nd Sopwith Camel.  I was inspired by Des Build.  I used the kit decals and parts from various other 1/32nd kits.  Overall I am pleased with the build. I didn't do the extensive mods that Des did, but overall it turned out well.  I should have checked my references before applying the decals.  Oh well.  Here it is.








And of course, in the front yard of the Red Pony diorama!

A lovely looking Camel Mark, you have done extremely well with the overall finish.

As I have said before, the Academy 1:32 scale Camel has been unfairly criticised over the years, it has it's faults but with a bit of work it builds up to be a really nice looking model. Dig them out of your stash guys and lets see what you can do with them  :) ;)

Well, I guess I missed this one totally in the beginning! I am glad Mark added his Beautiful Camel so I could see the first two! Well done on all 3 guys, the work we have come to expect from your benches!!

Looks great Mark! I have the same kit, and I'd like to get to it sometime. How did the decals behave for you?
