She's a real beauty. I've been waiting for the WnW version but as I see there are only a few of Roden's decals to worry about, I may well build one of these kits myself.

Cheers,

Chris

This is my all time favorite Triplane model, Des.  I love the prototype and plan on building one in 1/48 soon.  This particular plane had quite a history and a successful relationship with R. S. Dallas.
Cheers,
Bud

Such a beautiful Tripe, Dave.  As I said before, it's hard to believe this is 1/72 scale, let alone the Revell kit.  Brilliant work.
Cheers,
Bud

Gregory, aren't these Koster kits amazing?  You did a spectacular job on yours, my old friend.  So glad you brought her back out.
Cheers,
Bud

  Bud,
I agree 100% my old friend.Thank you for your more than kind comments too. I wasn't too certain I wanted to bring her back here though as my efforts weren't up to the standard of the other outstanding builds already presented here. Just built too long ago.
Highest Regards,
Gregory Jouette

Great looking Tripe hounds guys:

@ Des:  Your Roden kit is really a beaut!  I like the linen look you did, really a striking scheme.

@ Dave:  Your old Revell Kit really turned out nice.  Outstanding work.

@ Gregory:  I wouldn't feel to sheepish about posting your Koster Kit.  You did an amazing job on it and it still looks great.

Thanks all for sharing.

Best

Okay, here is my Aurora/K&B Sopwith Triplane.  I built this about 6 years ago when I got back into WWI aircraft.  It is a very basic kit so I put a pilot figure in it.







The markings are the kit supplied so are lacking the "C" and some of the other distinctive markings.  I enjoyed the build.  The fit was amazing!

Enjoy

Des, Dave, Gregory and Mark, thanks for sharing your talents...
Super bunch of Tripes. Newer and older models, but great just
the same.

Cheers,
Ernie :)
