WingNut Wings RE.8 “Harry Tate”

this is my 1:32 scale WingNut Wings RE.8 from the Duellist boxing. Mostly OOB with a few added details, ignition wires out of lead wire and some vent pipes for the fuel tank and of course the bracing wires and control wires out of monofilament.
i used the kit decals for a RE.8 D4689 “P”, 3 Sqn. AFC, 9 June 1918. Paints are custom mixed Mr. Color Lacquers. A nice kit, well detailed, but frail.
