Beautiful! I think you’ll give those premium John Jenkins Designs 1/30 scale aircraft a run for their money with the quality of your work.

However, if you’re going to continue with WWI aviation subjects, you should check out the kits made by the Wingnut Wings company. This company is owned by film director Peter Jackson (of Lord of the Rings fame) who is a big WWI history buff. I saw some of these kits at my Hobbytown store last Friday and the detail and quality was amazing :D

Thank you tman.

I know about the wingnutwings kits but the only issue is they are so pricey :)
I have decided to stick with 1/48 Euard kits as they are decent kits and are reasonably priced. I might get wingnutwings kit once in a while if I want another 1/32 biplane.
