Thanks guys, it's a really good little kit, I don't think I managed to do it full justice.

Good result!  :thumbsup:

[excuse]One thing to note about the Polish D.Is is that they modified the aileron control linkages to be on the underside of the wing to smooth flow over the top surface and improve love speed roll control (the linkages were found to cause early separation of the flow leading to some unfortunate landing accidents).
This has been faithfully recreated on this model, you just can't see them...honest.[/excuse]

Nice bit of whifjitsu too... ;) ;D
