1/72 Airfix, my only completed biplane so far, I modified a few things and added some rigging, finished in Tamiya, Humbrol and MM enamels with Aussie and Red Roo decals.

Great job on an old and very basic kit,she must be tiny, it would be nice to see more of the series together.
Thanks Neil, not all that small 36' wing, 29.5' long divided by 72.
Looks fantastic, the rigging is awesome, especially in this scale.
Nice little build, Allan...I like it.
I had a busy time doing the rigging on the Gladiator in 32nd scale, this must have been tough, excellent build.
Thanks Marc, not my favorite job.
Allan - meticulous work. Glad to see such a positive response to your post - Great War subjects don't always attract the interest they deserve.
Gee that,s nice, what did you use for rigging at that scale?
Thanks tom, clear invisible mending thread, I use the black variety for antennae on my other models.
Beautiful work and a beautiful aeroplane. Love the rigging.
Nice build! I've recently completed Po-2 and the rigging scared me, but I somehow managed to pull it off. This Avro's rigging is even more complicated so hat's off to you sir for pulling it of!
Looks great Allan ! I did this one a while back and had intended to do the rigging, but the center pylons and attachment points were so badly moulded that I gave up and just added the outer skid bars. Now a days, I'm too busy to check my paint jars.
Excellent build! As others have mentioned, great job on the rigging. Since I also build 1/72, I can appreciate what went into that! Did you find a particular technique that was best?
Thanks Greg, I drilled through the wing, super glued one end, pulled it tight and glued, then trimmed the excess and touched up the paint.
Great job, that's what keeps me away from biplanes It is the rigging.
Thanks Robert, might be why I've only done one so far.

Nice clean and tidy work Allan, nice one.
