Thanks Joe. I neede to pose the plane with something on the base, but I have no WWI figures made up. He's a good dog, and I think hes gonna show up with more 1/48 aircraft builds in the future...

Seriously nice Stik.  The rigging, propeller, and paint came out wonderful.  You made a pearl from this classic.  I don't have the guts to try rigging.

What is there to say about the Sopwith Camel? It is one of the iconic aeroplanes of WWI, probably the most well known from the Royal Flying Corps/Royal Air Force to even the novice aviation buff. And helped out no doubt by a certain cartoon beagle and his never ending quest to defeat the Red Baron. This is Monogram’s 1979 retool of Aurora’s 1956 vintage kit. I added a few bits to the interior, and detailed a few exterior bits. Rigging is steel wire and EZ Line, paints are Xtracolor, Humbrol, and Testors enamels. Decals are by Eagle Strike for a Camel from 45 Squadron flown in Italy in summer 1918 by Lt. C.M. Masters.

 

Very, very nice! A silk purse out of a camel's ear or something like thatBig Smile It's great to see an old kit given such new life, thanks for posting all the progress photos. Snoopy would be proud to climb aboard.

Chad and Gil, thank you for your kind words.
Chad, try your hand at rigging sometime. It's not as difficult as you might think. I'd suggest an aircraft with less rigging such as a Fokker D. VII or Dr.I for less of an amount to do as an introduction.

Gil, yes, I think Snoopy would be quite content to climb aboard for a Dawn Patrol on this one.
