1/48 SPAD XIII late version
Finished a biplane with rigging for the first time in ages. Lots of fun and challenges. The Eduard kit was great as usual, but has a 3-part fuselage assembly that presented some fit challenges that that led to me to do some over done sanding that led to problems down line with the cabane assembly. Was also my first experience with EX Line which worked well but requires deft supergluing. The most enjoyable part was working with the extensive cockpit detail. Mastered some wood coloring techniques. This cockpit looks like an vintage alarm clock store. Definitely not a project for beginning AC modelers.
