  Dave ,
As best I recall the project wasn't too difficult but there was a lot of surgery to perform on the wings and the fuselage. At the time and I guess it still was the only way I could build a SE.5 for my collection. I had the idea to do this project again sometime ago but in 1/32 scale . I have two WNW SE.5a's and a Roden kit as well to convert plus  much more reference material on the type. Just never got around to it.
Highest Regards,
Gregory Jouette

I hope you do find a way to get to the 1/32 scale SE.5; that would be a fun build to watch I think.

Nice SE5's guys.  Gregory, great job on two cantankerous kits.  Turned out great. Des, your brass work and the engine is truly outstanding.  Brad, another great kit and Dave, your 1/72nd old kit is truly noteworthy.  I post mine here.  Like Lance said, this is a great part of the forum, I am enjoying seeing all the great models by the modelers on this forum.  All are truly great models by skilled modelers.

This is the result of some ruined parts and extras from another WNW SE5.  I don't remember the squadron or pilot, but I like the markings and am happy with the results.  I would do another one and may before WNW sells out of the kit.













Enjoy
Mark

Hello Des, Brad, Gregory, Dave and Mark,

Thank you for posting your magnificent builds here. Des your build log was an exceptional one and helped me a lot in building mine. Unfortunately I failed in installing the upper wing. But a few days ago I worked a bit on it and probably I will continue my log. I still think the SE5a is one of the most beautiful aircrafts produced during the war. You all made great builds. Many congratulations!

Kind regards
Patrick

Mark and Lance, two outstanding models of the SE.5a, both are built by very talented modelers which shows in the stunning examples displayed here, well done guys.

And to Brad, Gregory and Dave who posted their models earlier, brilliant models, some beautiful models being shown here.

 Thanks Des and Mark.
 Mark, is this the one you had put back in the box several times? If so, what a recovery!

Hi Lance:  Yes it is.  I did a build log called the "Phoenix".  Did things a lot different the second time around.  It was a fun build.

Thanks Lance
