Hi Rob,
I think it's an effect of the photographs - no intended twist in the wires,

Hi all,
I think I'll call the rigging done!!
There's still few tweaks to the weathering, rigging end fittings and turnbuckles etc and of course the base of the display case, but the Camel is getting close to completion.

Hi all,
It's done, so I thought you might like to see my 16th 1:32 scale build - The Sopwith F1 ‘Camel’. This model represents the Sopwith F1 ‘Camel’, Serial No.B6313 (later modified version), as flown by Major William George ‘Billy’ Barker, CO of No.139 Squadron, RAF, based at Villaverla, Italy during August 1918. This model depicts the later version of B6313, when field modifications were carried out to introduce four cooling slots in the engine cowl, linen covering removed from the centre section of the upper wing and cockpit decking sides reduced or removed.
Modified or corrected:

Cockpit:
‘Barracuda Studios’ Wicker Seat and cushion (BR32332).
‘HGW Models’ Sopwith Camel seat belts (132590).
Copper micro-tubes for fuel supply to engine, main and auxiliary fuel tanks, fuel contents indicator and fuel tank pressurization.
Brass micro-tubes for a pipe 4-way union, pipe connectors and fuel filter.
Lead wire for gun trigger cables and engine ‘blip’ switch.
Rigging wires with turnbuckles for cockpit side frame, under shield and floor bracing.
Flight control cables with turnbuckles for ailerons, rudder, elevator and tail skid.
Micro-tube for throttle control linkage.

External after market and additions:
‘Blackdog Models’ RFC Fighter Pilot 14-18 No.2 (F32014)
‘Copper State Models’ RFC Mechanic (F32-0026).
‘Proper Plane’ wood propeller - Lang type (WP004).
‘Copper State Model’ Tools and Cans set (AE32-005).
‘Aviattic’ linen effect decal - Clear Doped Linen (ATT32094).
‘Aviattic’ linen effect decal - PC12 ‘Light’ RFC/RAF (ATT32092).
‘Xtradecal’ Parallel Stripes (White - XPS2 and Black - XPS1).
Various ‘Albion Alloy’ Micro-tube (Brass or Nickel Silver).
‘Steelon’ Mono-Filament 0.12mm diameter.
‘Stroft GTM’ Silicon-PTFE tempered monofil (Blue/Grey 0.08mm diameter).
‘RB Motion’ 0.51mm Aluminium hexagonal nuts (1279-A).
‘EZ Line’ white (heavy).
‘Polak’ grass mat (Wild Meadow (4706).
‘Inperspextive’ made acrylic display case.
Brushed silver, black printed - information plaques.

As usual I've created a downloadable build log in Adobe PDF format, for those who might want to refer to it for reference or build details. It contains full step by step descriptions of the model build, its modifications/changes and is also supported with illustrations and reference photographs and information. If viewed in Adobe Reader, each build log has book marked chapters/headings for easier navigation through the log.
My model website has the gallery page, so to view any model, go to the gallery and select it. If it has a PDF build log, it will be available to download using the 'PDF' icon on that models photo's page. The gallery will scroll through the various photographs for any particular model selected for viewing.

Mike it looks stupendous and such a great grouping for the diorama. Just love it!

and now...for my humble modeling submission! A creation from 20 years ago when I had good eyesight and steady hands. It's nowhere near your level of expertise though and is a stock Tamiya kit un-altered.

Hi Rob,
I've got your email and I'll get back to you.
That's a nice model and I particularly like the subtle exhaust stains and the mottled, pre-shading on the fuselage.
Neat painting on the canopy framing as well.
A model you can be proud of for sure,

Mike

You may claim you're not a Master, but there are plenty of people here and I'll bet more than a few acknowledged Masters who would disagree. This piece is a true work of art, worthy of any collection.

My own building is confined almost exclusively to 1/72 scale, and these days mostly "toys" for an air war game I've played with friends for more than forty years, though I did do a major conversion to make a model of the original Boeing 299, or XB-17, which is the centerpiece of the entrance to the Hill Air Force Base museum.


Some people are born stupid. I've had to work hard my whole life to get this way. I'm proud of the job I've done

I agree with Sailor Steve you are a Master Sandbagger the art you make is simply amazing. I like to build model cars, but they are mere pieces of junk compared to you fine airplane models. I can never slow down enough to do a great job and I have the Artistic talent of a snail. Thanks for sharing your wondrous talents.
Thanks John

Hi all,
I got Rob's OK to take the Camel, plus a few other models, to the annual Scale Model Exhibition held at the Shuttleworth Collection in Bedfordshire, UK.
I had no intention of entering any competitions there, so I must admit it came as a surprise that the judges had toured all of the displays and considered mine as 'Best of Show'.
The 'John Morris Memorial Trophy' has been going only since 2013 and I'm to be 'engraved'  as they retain the trophy for display.
It's a polished Merlin piston on a wood base with winners plaques down one side.
I did receive a certificate and complimentary tickets to a Shuttleworth 'Collection Event air show during 2019.

Mike

Hi Mike;

I for one am not surprised at the recognition you received. I do believe you underestimate your skill set. That said, underestimating oneself generally is advantageous as it pushes us to new limits of achievement.

So glad to hear you earned the award as recognition of your skills. The tickets to Shuttleworth are a nice addition. I know you didn't have the opportunity to take the award home, but did you get a snapshot of it? Would be nice to see how it looks.

Again, congratulations!

Best Regards

Way to go Mike! That is fantastic, and a most well-deserved honour. Do you have any photos of your display at the show? I'd love to see 'em if you do. Congrats again Sir, your work is amazing.

Holly sh#t! That is amazing! Congratulations to you and respect to your skills. I know from this thread that a lot of work went into this build so it is deserved. Congrats again!
