Roden 1/48 SE5a, (Mick Mannock)
December 20, 2012 in Aviation
This is another old build. It’s the Roden SE, the Part PE set was not available when I started the kit, so I scratched some detail, and used the limited old set for the Aurora/Monogram kit. The one up to date PE section was the Eduard prepainted instruments set, which livened the ‘office’ quite a bit. The other ‘extra’ bit was, I gouged out the pulley inspection ‘windows’ and inserted some thread and a bit of sprue for the pulley and control line, and covered them with cello cut from the parts bag. Markings are for Mick Mannock, the top RFC/RAF ace.
