  1. Beautiful job David. Great detail in the cockpit! All around winner.

  2. What mistakes? Looks amazing, congratulations!

  3. What an OUTSTANDING build ! I don't see any mistakes here, only perfection at it's best. These WNW kits are magnificent, and look exceptionally nice once completed. I truly hope that someone scrupulous ends up with the existing molds and continues to make them, in the same fashion that Meng has done with their recent Fokker Dr-1 release. I have been summoning up the intestinal fortitude to build a few of the WNW planes in my stash. The Fokker D-VII, Albatros D-III and Pfalz D-III all come to mind instantly. If I do, I sincerely hope to have mine turn out only HALF as nice as yours always do. Then I would be a very happy man...

    Well done my friend. I pressed the "liked" button too.

    🙂 Stay safe.

  4. I will start with my usual (for your builds) comment, David:
    "By only seeing the headline pic, I knew it would be one of your builds!"
    This is totally spectacular work and the only mistake I can see, is that there are no mistakes.
    Well done and BIG thanks for sharing!

  5. Beautiful build, an gorgeous detailing and weathering. Perfect!

  6. Another reason to keep my WNW Camel in the box (for now). 🙂

    Thanks for the inspiration, David.

  7. Impressive. I really appreciate your work.

  8. An exceptional fine looking Camel, David.
    Awesome details.

  9. Great work David!

  10. Great job David and you should be proud of it.
