SsashoO,
   Very striking finish and the weathering is exceptional. You've done the old girl proud, congratulations on some really great modelling!
Stan,
   1:72 Scale?!? Beautifully done and a great colour scheme. I vaguely recall my "Braille Scale' days, but I wasn't producing this quality of work for certain!
Cheers,
Lance

  I'll throw my WNW Bif in as well, completed late last year, and covered with a complete Build Log in Completed Models. I agee with Des' comment, one of their very best Kits.













   A very enjoyable Build that took me at least twice the time I thought it would! :o
Cheers,
Lance

Saasho0, You must have the patience of a saint masking that beauty!  Amazing
work, even more so considering the size. Such talent!

Lance, I don't get tired of looking at your stunning Brisfit.  Wonderful workmanship
and attention to detail. Thanks for the inspiration!

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Sasho, I could swear I've seen this one before.  I could never forget a beauty like this.  Did you finish her a few years ago on the 'drome?  Your shading, decal application and weathering are brilliant.  Although I've already got 7 various Biff kits (including the Brisfish) in my stash, you've tempted me to seek out this one, as well.

Lance, I remember when you finished this one and I fell in love with her as soon as I laid eyes on her.  She's absolutely stunning.  Your exhaust stacks are phenomenal, the engine is a work of art in itself, and your finish is beautiful.  I think this is your best to date.
Cheers,
Bud

Great topic,  I have not yet completed a Bristol F2B but after seeing this thread I pulled out of the box a Roden 1/48 kit that I had started around 5 or 6 years ago, this has given me the motivation to start it again I think...
So far mainly out of the box with addition of Eduard seat belts and gauges, and not sure where the photoetched Scarrif mount came from.  Engine is the kit engine right out of the box with the only addition being the spark plug wires.
