    I have started the next build while I wait to complete the prop for the NI-28 and I was so close tonight but moved to fast,live and learn.So as you can see I have painted all the wood pieces Testors wood and hit them with a coat of Future and leaving to dry till tomorrow night.The propeller for the Camel I roughed up alittle with a 240grit stick to simulate a grain maybe saw that here

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYTmx9WncMM might work in this instance.But my intentions is to simulate all pieces with a grain I hope?I also am going to be tring out this technique for the buckles here Turnbuckles and Eyelets Cheers

    I will direct you to Vic's Glouster builds in the last G.B., if you want a good directory on how to do the rigging.

    Terry the kit is pretty decent esp since I am pretty sure I paid under $20 for it no flash and crisp lines.I will be using some of this guys efforts as a guide;good overview also Academy Sopwith Camel F.1

    Thanks for the info Kevin. Looks like it can be made into a very nice model. Might try one some day - last time I built a 'Camel', it was the Revell 1/28th scale version, probably 50 years ago now! Jeez, I am getting old !!!

    Yep, built that one myself, and the Fokker!
    Still have the figure of the "Red Barron", wish I had the "Eddie Rickenbacher"
