    well done I have the same crate except from Revell same scale though currently rigging it at the minute off and on due to college work :lol: when will they learn that we have got lives to lead as well? :lol: :oops: anyways how was the Academy offering to build? because I am considering adding it to my collection as I have not yet built a Royal Flying Corps Sopwith of any type, all my 4 are Royal Naval Air Service (2 Triplanes a pup and a Camel)
