    Alright guys, here's some of the pictures from the research I have done and reading through some PDF files Wojtek sent me! (Big thank you there!)

    Alot of these illustrate just the general overview of the aircraft. I was curious if anyone could find a picture of the cockpit for the RXIII.D and post it? Because I have found pictures of other variants but they aren't all the same.

    Anyways heres some pictures

    Very nice Harry. THe cockpit of the Lublin R XIII was very basic. To be honest all you need to make it is shown in these drawings above, including the indicator panel. The base for all devices in there was a truss (framework) made of welded of steel pipes and stiffened with steel wire.

    Looks simple enough! I'm not even sure what pieces they gave me in terms of the cockpit so I'm going to take a look later tonight or tomorrow and then try and formulate a game plan for it.

    Here are some sprue shots, directions, and just overall shot of the workbench

    It actually quite a small aircraft! For 1/48 scale I was surprised at the size

    That looks cool!
    I am a sucker for the more obscure aircraft.
    If you can hang loose for a few more days, this would make for an interesting addition to the "between the wars" GB!

    Lots of great information and pictures for this one Harrison. Can't wait to see you start it. Are you going to attempt any of the rigging?

    Yep, sorry! I got my days screwed up.
    There are several ways of dealing with rigging. I will send you the address to a dedicated WW1 modeling site, there is a tutorial on several methods.

    I think all colours are shown in the kit instruction. Have you checked?
