    Looks good Clave, like it. Finishing it off, will you add manufacturer's markings, serial numbers and the like?

    Always liked the Camel. Glad I never had to fly it, but liked the look.

    Clave this is an excellent work.:D :thumbleft: I start being envious of your talent.:lol:
    Howevwer,in a pic that shows an American volunteer Lt.Kenneth M.Murray and the Sopwith F.1 Camel (F5234) of 7 Fighter Squadron,on Lewandowka airfield in 1920, the serial no. is written with a bit different font from your and it is a bit higher painted from the lower edge of the fuselage.Although,the pic presents the other side of the a/c only, the Polish square on the rudder in your profile should be turned right 90 degrees.Unfortunately the pic quality is not good but it seems that on both upper and lower surfaces of wings the Polish national markings were also painted instead of the British ones.

    But it is still well done mate.:D :D :D

    I made a *slight* error with the wing marking.. :lol:

    Tail marking: fixed

    Font: changed - but I don't really have a match, if you find something, point me to the site where I can download the font from...

    So, here's Version2:

    It is almost correct now.But the previous font seems to be better.
    I've found another colour profile of the Camel.Maybe this would help you.

    Hit 'Refresh' - should be good now... Also changed the fin marking slightly... :)

    I'll also put a poster up on my devArt page if this is any good...

    Clave thank you very much for your work.:thumbleft:
    This is one of the most beautiful profiles of the Polish Camel I've ever seen.:D
    I thik it is really O.K.But according to the pic mentioned by me the serial should be a bit higher on the fuselage.There is a part of your profile with the correct place of the serial.I hope you haven't taken offence at that.

    great looking Camel!

    i've been wondering if anyone has seen a profile or pic of Kazakov's Russian Camel? he mostly flew another type plane, but also a Camel.

    thanks!
