A couple of quick questions. Does anyone know of any aftermarket resin parts for the 1/48 Revell/Eduard Sopwith Camel? I was kind of hoping that some enterprising company might have made a replacement undercarriage with the Rotherham fuel pump attached back when the Eduard Camel was in production. I've had a pretty comprehensive look and come up empty. I've had a look at the Eduard photo etch for the camel and they provide a fuel pump for those Camels that had it positioned on the undercarriage but it looks very one dimensional and not very convincing as well as being a rather expensive outlay for only a few parts that I would use from the set. The only other option that I was going to go with was to cut the molded fuel pump very carefully off the cabane strut and scratchbuild new attachment arms for the leg, something that I was hoping to avoid. If anyone has any ideas as to another way to go about it I'd be very appreciative.
