A little update on the build: The rigging - Phew, as theese are my first wwI biplane builds, I'm on a steep learning curve.
Doing things twice and... But slowly I'm getting the 'hang' of the required techniques...



About halfway through the rigging... I must say, I really do look forward to this part beeing over with!



I've started working on the diorama base, using modellingpaste for the groundwork, it's now ready for some static grass...



Regards: Kent

Update on the build: Working on the figures and the diorama base...





I was worried how the static grass would turn out, different color static mixed to get some fading around the road. I'm happy with the result...

I have not dropped by lately - I am extremely impressed at how this has turned out - and the speed at which it has been accomplished too. First class modelling x 3 1/2 and then some more.

Thank you Stephen. I'm struggling a bit to get the last details done, too many loose ends. Hopefully it will all come together soon...

Truly impressive diorama.  Those figures are outstanding, love the differences in colors of flying suits.  Getting close to the end and I am looking forward to your progress.
