Amazing work, CNQ :D WWI aircraft are a difficult subject to build and to get the rigging perfect the way you did is incredible, particularly in 1/48 scale. Did you paint the lozenge camouflage or were those decals?

Thank you.

tman,
Yes I feel the same ww1 planes depending on the kit are a bit more difficult to build than ww2 and modern planes in same scale. The rigging is tricky and is taking time and patience to do it correctly ( and also try to maintain your sanity after that :D ); But I love these guys as they are so colorful compare to planes in other era; Oh and the lozenge camouflage are all decals.

Nice collection of planes. I always thought my Father had a lot of 1/48 WWI planes but I only found 3 or 4. The looked like 1960 or earlier models. Not as beautiful as yours.

Thanks tman & grockwood.

I've started building kits with WW2 models & jets, and I've recently fallen in love with WW1 bi-planes :D .. I really like Eduard WW1 1/48 kits as they are excellent kits and reasonable priced. So below is my newest purchased (still waiting for its arrival)
