Here is the twin to the Sopwith Swallow, the Scooter.
1:72 scale.
Still needs some weathering and tidying up and a final coat of varnish.

Here is a 1:72 Bristol M.IC.
I have now fixed that bit of rogue rigging by the undercarriage frame.

Vickers FB 19 MkI - Bullet
This was a British single seat fighting scout developed from the Barnwell Bullet prototype.
Around 65 were built, 6 early production models were found unsuitable for fighting in France in late 1916.
The Mk II were sent to the Middle East. They were not a popular aircraft.
The Russians procured between 20 and 30 of the type, some unarmed ones served as trainers. At least 4 went to front line units and the ace Grigoriy Suk claimed 2 victories.

The kit is from Kovozavody Prostejov and is in 1:72 scale.
The kit contains one sprue and decals.
I have finished mine as a MkI and that in the service of Imperial Russian Air Service.

This was the Stearman thread.
This is the Big one.
This is the 1/32 ICM kit, and very nice it looks too.
Seat belts mocked up.

Hi Zak,
Looking very impressive.
No doubt the next one in the pile is a 1/1 Stearman........?
