  1. Given that that is the SH re-release of the first-release Classic Airframes He-51 with the misplaced mountings for the interplane struts, I have no doubt you had a very hard time doing this model, so you are definitely to be congratulated for slogging your way through to this excellent result.

  2. This is one design that I think prefers floats over wheels. Nice job, Ricardo- that's a very crisp build and marvelous finish.

  3. Always one to pile kudos on anyone who undertakes builds with multiple wings (AND copious amounts of rigging)...and this one looks right. Nice.

  4. Gorgeous! I love the finish you achieved and the photography is superb!

  5. That is just perfect, going to add one to the stash after seeing your build.

  6. Thank you very much for your comments guys.
    Since I do not usually make biplanes, I got target just to finish, that's why I did not major modifications or additions.
    Tom, yes, it was quite difficult to bring to good port, the upper wing was made ​​a banana and floats supports had to remake them from scratch.

  7. Congratulations, a professional kit done to museum quality standards.There is nothing more to say.

  8. I built this kit before two years and I actually know how much is it problematic. Wonderful result after building this bad kit, Ricardo ! 😉
