I will probably eventually recolor some more Finnish models but i am currently doing an airliner and I have a phantom project that I have the recolors done and need to build. Guess I need to go look at some more Finn camo. Another one or two would look good with the Buffalo. Hopefully I can get to it soon.

well, in my quest for a more realistic prop on my Wedell-Williams, I tried gluing a small section of round toothpick in the center of the prop like this:

just need to make the landing gear & wing wires!

well, its finished! altho the right wing tip is a litle warped, but not so bad as to be easily noticeable.
I'l post pics when I can. Now, on to the Niuport 28.......

Nice looking Gilmore. I really like the paint scheme on this plane. Tried to build it once but the wheel pants drove me nuts. Good luck with the Nieuport.

Thats a nice build. Good clean lines. You make an older FG model look great.
