"A totally unique experience." @richardms
Blue Max 1/48 Avro 504K completed. RFC/RAF 8 Training Sqn 1918. Not an easy build with the pewter parts but it's the best 504 around in my opinion. EZ line rigging.

A wonderful build, Paul!
The Blue Max is indeed the better kit.
I have the ancient SMER to build one day that I will feel very brave... 🙂
Thank you. 🙂 Good luck with the Smer. I hear it is actually 1/50 scale.
I was lucky to get the Blue Max. Trying very hard now to get an LVG kit. Not easy to get, or build. LOL/
I'm peechless, Paul @paulwoodyvanacker
The rigging looks fantastic.
Thanks very much mate. 🙂
Paul,this is a most gorgeous contraption! I love the simple markings and the plenty wires keeping it from falling apart. I always hoped Wingnut would produce a 504 in 1/32, but...well.
LOL. Thank you.
I hope you get one in 1/32 someday/
What a product! Given that I know the basics, you really did a great AVRO on that scale. Surely someone will soon offer a modern kit.
Thank you. Maybe one day, but I wouldn't imagine it'll be one of the mainstream companies that continually churn out 109s and Spitfires. (Not a bad thing but I've done tones of them already.)
Fingers crossed. 🙂
Nice work, Paul. Those Blue Max kits are becoming rare.
Thank you. ? Yes, I'm still looking for a few.
Great looking build, Paul. Well done.
Thank you ?
There's no BM kit that isn't difficult. I did this one myself, so I know what you had to overcome to get to this great result.
Thank you. Yes I saw the wonderful job you did on yours.
I'm looking for some of the others now, the LVG etc. I can't imagine there will be another produced by anyone else anytime soon. I got a Sopwith Snipe so it'll be on the to do list soon. ?
Masterful work, beautiful rigging .
Thank you. ?
Very nice - personifies the "held together with baling wire" concept! You did a great job with the rigging.
Well done !
Thank you. 🙂
