Here are a couple of shots of the first of a batch of WW1 aircraft I'm tinkering with. On the left a Fokker Dr1 triplane (H&RGWA303) and on the right a Sopwith Camel (H&RGWA101). The triplane is painted flat red with hand painted iron crosses, The Camel is in khaki grey with hand painted roundels. Both have been washed with army painter dark ink.
At last a chance to relive the stories that thrilled me as a boy, Capt W.E. Johns "Biggles" books, especially "Pioneer Air Fighter", "266" and "The Camels are coming", as well as Nordoff and Hall's "Falcons of France" and of course "Aces High".
I thought these were going to be really tricky to put together, but in the end they turned out to be surprisingly easy and look really good considering the scale.
Thanks for looking.
