  3. What an incredible build, David.
    Everything looks great on this build, detailing, painting, weathering, you name it.
    Well done.

  4. What can I say? It’s a masterpiece... I’ve read good things about this kit and its variations, but your work made it unbeatable. Congratulations David

  5. This is a wonderful build, David.
    A masterpiece indeed!

  6. Very nice. What kit is this?

    What a work of art ! This is an incredible model. Each time I look at it, I notice another hidden detail that I missed the first time around. Did you add the rib stitching on the wings, and laces on the fuselage ? Or are they part of the kit ? The wooden parts look so realistic too.

    This also happens to be my very favorite scheme for the Nieuport 17. I have scratch built the majority of the pieces needed for a 1/6 scale RC electric powered flying model, and mine is painted in the same markings. I still have to build the top wing and landing gear for it. Everything else is done. I even built a 1/6 scale Williams Brothers Le Rhone rotary for hide the electric out runner motor. I'm afraid to finish it up because I will fly it... and inevitably crash it ! Mine has an almost identical framework, as I mimicked the fuselage formers and it has scale wing rib spacing.

    Well done, and I definitely pressed the "liked" button...

  8. Great looking model, even if it has one too many wings. I have heard that Copperstate models can be a handful, but you have done an amazing job. Well done.

  9. Show stopping build. What museum is it going in 🙂
