Williams Brothers Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk

June 9, 2019 · in Aviation · · 16 · 2.3K

Hi All, This is is the Williams Brothers Curtiss Sparrowhawk. The kit went together well. The only tricky bit is the area where the upper wing meets the fuselage. Compound curves and gaps induce some modelling skills. I was really happy with the finished model. I am not as happy with the lighting for the photos. I will have to work on this for future posts. Hope you all enjoy the pictures.
