Yeah, I got this kit at a local hobby shop here in Tucson. It was a good change of pace model. I kind of want to add a Spad, Neuport even a Fokker Tri-plane to the series.

Hey, I have one of those! Pretty rough kit, wasn't it? I still need to add the rigging to mine. There really isn't much available for WWI aviation, but I would love to see what Hasegawa or Tamiya could do with such a subject.

Yep it was Rouge, I wanted to give up a few times especialy while working on the rigging. but I had to stop when I could not figure out how to set up the control wires for the rudder and elevator. But over all not a bad build if is say so myself.

I have 5 or 6 of those 1/72 scale WWI planes around here somewhere; I much prefer the aircraft from WWI over that from WWII for whatever reason. These kits are lot of fun--reasonably quick and easy to build (if you're not overly concerned about super-detailing or accuracy) and they don't take up a great deal of display space. :thumbsup:

Rigging? Can you buy wire thin enough to be in-scale? :D
