  1. Great job on an old and very basic kit,she must be tiny, it would be nice to see more of the series together.

  2. Looks fantastic, the rigging is awesome, especially in this scale.

  3. Nice little build, Allan...I like it.

  4. I had a busy time doing the rigging on the Gladiator in 32nd scale, this must have been tough, excellent build.

  5. Allan - meticulous work. Glad to see such a positive response to your post - Great War subjects don't always attract the interest they deserve.

  6. Hats off.

  7. Gee that,s nice, what did you use for rigging at that scale?

  8. Beautiful work and a beautiful aeroplane. Love the rigging.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. Great job, that's what keeps me away from biplanes It is the rigging.

  13. Nice build

  14. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
