My first WW1 2 seater.

March 13, 2021 · in Aviation · · 16 · 1.8K

Bristol fighter. No.139 squadron Villaverla, Italy 1918. Hope you like. Rigging is ez line (fine).
I can't get enough of my WW1 subjects. There's some very colourful ones coming soon. I think that's one of the things I love about them.
Have a great day all.

  1. Excellent job, Paul!

  2. Well done, Paul. British rigging isn’t easy in 1/48. You did a fine job.

  3. Very neat work, Paul, the rigging looks great. Are those early D-Day stripes? Definitely liked.

  4. Looks amazing, I have always had a soft spot for the Bristol Fighter. I need to try and build a 'proper' WW1 bird but the rigging puts me off, so far I've only built a Fokker D.VII and that's because I deliberately chose a plane without rigging!

    • Thank you. My first was a Fokker Dvii actually. But I've done a few WW2 biplanes already. The only thing about rigging for me, is sorting it all out before top wing assembly. Otherwise, its a great feeling seeing it take shape.
      It's not too hard. I have a way to go before I'm totally happy with it, but I'm on the learning path. ?

  5. Great build. Can't be much left on that drum of easy line!

  6. Beautiful Biff! It’s a big bird in 1/48!

  7. Very nice build, Paul.
    You have tackled those bi-plane builds for sure.
