WNW's Ships Camel
« on: June 12, 2017, 03:19:02 AM »
Evening,

Think I'm calling this done - although I haven't done the figure yet... I may still add it - see how I go.

A lot of fun making the simple base - basically a rough copy of the photo on HMS Calliope...























Thanks again for those following along with my moaning during the build...  :)

Very very good.
The burnished cowling is amazing. Also the flying-off platform. :)

That's a truly gorgeous Camel, Guy, and that base is perfect!  A figure would be a nice addition, but it's absolutely brilliant as is.  Love it!
Cheers,
Bud

The aircraft looks superb - no matter what its builder may think - but the 'flight deck' sets the seal on a very impressive & novel display.

Most of us are often never happy with what we've produced but that's a stunning model in anyone's book - you should be well pleased with that outcome Guy that really is a terrific result (big thumbs up sign required here!)

I am hopelessly sidetracked at the moment but popped in to find this - absolutely brilliant work - well done on a superb model all round

Magnificent Guy, the model and base together make it even better! I've shamelessly added this to my Camel File for future reference, hope you don't mind!
