Truly stunning, Dirk.  I love that the cowling is removeable.
Cheers,

How did I miss these? Des' saw yours on the main site and that was what hooked me. I came back every day to look at what was new. PrzemoL and Dirk yours are amazing too. Really like that white scheme.

Maybe I'll just build mine in secret after seeing these amazing Biffs!

Cheers,

She may have given you fits, Stan, but she sure is a beauty!  Congratulations.

It took a long time and I had to back up and re-do things sometimes. The mounts for the lower wing were the worst. A very detailed kit, all details were in scale(read tiny). I LOVE the paint scheme,especially after seeing it here. 
 
But for $6 USD from Squadron I jumped in. The final result was okay. It is fragile though. I held my breath taking it out of the cabinet to photograph.

Thanks!

A lovely piece of work Stan. I know just what you mean about the terrors of taking a Brisfit out of the cabinet. It could well be the sturdiest of builds but I remain a bundle of nerves until it's safely back inside.

Best wishes

Wonderful workmanship on all the Brisfits.  Without taking away from the 1/32 examples, which are
phenomenal,  Prze and Stan, yours in the teeny scale must have been really challenging...
Superb job, both of you!

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Here is my effort with the 1;48 Eduard Bristol fighter - any deffects are due to the modeller and not due to the kit itself - it was a blast to build this one! I'm thinkng of getting the WnW at some point in the future as I really, really like this aircraft!

What a great finish Ssasho0! It makes mine seem so drab.

I'm a little slow to reply to this topic but;

Prze - Your Bristol is magnificent, hard to believe it is 1:72 scale.

Dirk - A beautiful model, to cover up such a wonderful engine would be a shame, your engine looks great.

Stan - Another brilliant piece of modeling in 1:72 scale, I love the white scheme.

Ssashoo - Incredible job, and in 1:48 scale, truely amazing.
