  1. Another unbelievably well done threat to the "Best Of" monthly award Maxim.

  2. Yeah...what Al said - you never cease to amaze with your presentations. Love the subtle weathering and especially the appearance of the stitching of the canvass on the fuselage. How'd you DO that?

    • In fact, very simple, small sharpened screwdriver. At this time lacing not turned out - I was in a hurry, it turned out uneven. In general, of course it is better to use etching))

  3. A real beauty !

  4. Ditto ...definitely a threat and lock to the "Best Of ' monthly award, A sharp,smart build. A job well done,well done indeed.

    Two thumbs up.

  5. Impressive. Good finish on the wood.

  6. As everyone else said - really excellent. I'd love to know a little more history on the airplane, the unit, the campaign. The 1918-22 Civil War is "Terra Incognita."

    • This is If briefly:

      At the end of the First World War, part of the aircraft, before acting against Turkey in the South Caucasus was assigned to the White Army. In addition, to help White movement arrived in Russia of the 47th and 221st Divisions RAF, armed with "Camel" and DH.9. Only a few dozen machines of this type were received in 1919, at the disposal of General Denikin. In the spring of 1920 27 "De Havilland", 25 of them DH.9, formed the backbone of the Air Force of the Crimean group of Whites. They play a decisive role in defeating the Red Cavalry Corps Goons and reflection of the summer offensive of the Bolsheviks in the Crimea. Later Wrangel DH.9 participated in the fighting in North Tavrii and Kahovsky springboard. By early November due to heavy wear and tear and lack of spare parts, none of them could not get off the ground.
