  1. Great work yet again Vlad.
    How you people an build bi planes beats me, I am struggling with my Gladiator.
    Well done sir, and nice pics too I must add.

  2. Cracking job here. Rigging looks accurate and in scale, and the prop is solid wood and not laminated (something peculiar to SPADs).

  3. There you go again, Vlad...making a 1/72nd BIPLANE ( no less), look like a 1/32nd kit...AND makin' most of the rest of us peons look amateurish . Isn't there something you could post that you've never built before..? Aw - never mind, that'd probably look just an well anyhow. Like someone once said. "...some guys got it, some guys don't.." πŸ™
    Seriously, Vlad...another well-done aeroplane. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm sure I have a box of plastic parts to assemble - somewhere.

  4. Rob, Craig, thank you very much!

    A little hard to understand all the figures of speech, but the basic meaning understood. Thank you again! I'm glad.

    Best regards, Vlad.

  5. Nice work as usual here Vlad.

  6. Simply Stunning Vlad, way to tricky for me my friend.

  7. All, Mark, SPASIBO! (thank you!) πŸ™‚

    Best regards, Vlad.

  8. Vlad,
    To think this little masterpiece is only 1/72 has me in complete awe. Exceptional.

  9. Fabulous, as usual, Vlad, I particularly like the markings on this, they really set it off very well.

  10. Vlad now that's a piece of art! Great build. Awesome!

  11. George, Morne, thank you! πŸ™‚

    Best regards, Vlad.

  12. Absolutely beautiful piece of work Vlad. The rigging is superb. The orientation of the star on the rudder was also interesting. Looks like they were going for the largest star they could fit on the rudder with the least distortion.

  13. Again a perfect and clean build in this small scale ! Your collection of WW I
    aircraft is stunning !
