That's VERY smart!   :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Nicely done! Did you use the kit decals? Both times I built that the kit decals were hopeless.

It's indeed a very good build.  It's a whif or real world?

Looks like a nice build.

Every time I see the title I keep thinking about Sopwith the Camel from Beau Peep  :rolleyes:
