  1. Really nice model, Paul, an absolute beauty! So great to see WWI subjects rolling off the Paul van Acker factory!

    • Thank you so much. I'm loving the rigging, creating wood grain etc.. it feels more artistic than my usual WW2 subjects.
      Overall they're more challenging, in my opinion. ?

  2. Fantastic WWI build, Paul @paulwoodyvanacker
    Your builds from this era are of a high standard.
    Looking forward to the Italian one.

  3. Nice work, Paul. What paints did you use for the camo? Your choices look pretty good to me based on surviving bits and pieces of actual planes.

    • Thank you. I used My Color acrylics except for the tan and light green, which
      I mixed up myself. The tan was only a touch darker than the sail colour but I didn't like how dark it came across when using the colour suggested by Eduard. So I lightened it.
      I went of surviving examples. ?

  4. Love that color scheme!

  5. Nice build Paul @paulwoodyvanacker - great to see in that scheme!

  6. Looks great! I don't like the rigging so try to steer clear of WWI stuff...
