Many thanks for your generous and supportive comments, Bob, Rick, Smith, Stephen, Terri and Frank, they are a great encouragement to me!

Last night I added a few last details so my Camel is ready for painting.





Cheers

To see what the master of the micro-scale produces is a real treat. I would really like to see thse models for real as they are truly miniature works of art.

The RAF Museum has just uploaded this image it states is of Barker's personal marking from this specific Camel.



Reportedly he cut the fabric from each side of the tailplane and gave one each to his ground crew as a souvenir.

Dave, this piece of history is in the Grahame White Hanger @ RAF Hendon  ;)
Looks real nice, but why it's not in one of the museums in Canada is beyond me.
