Mini Sopwith Camel / se5 facelift

#1
Started work on my sop camel facelift.
First week was spent drawing and making templates. They are crude and untested and incomplete without the turtle deck but I'll post them anyway. The model uses most of the wing parts from the se5 & landing gear parts from the dr1. My next post will have assembly photos. img001.jpg img001.jpg img002.jpg img003.jpg img004.jpg img005.jpg

Impressive! That's some precision design and execution. The locking former on the nose is particularly slick. I am very much looking forward to further updates! :D

That's for the great feedback. I'm trying to make the camel go together as much as the se5 & dr1 but I'll fill you all in on any special build info especially when it comes to the cowl.
