Sheesh!  It looks good enuf to fly!  The extra touches you added and the wing wiring really make it.  The camouflage looks almost WWII in style and that they left some panels in bare metal makes me wonder what they were thinking in those days.  
The U.S. Public TV show "Nova" did an episode on the evolution of planes in WWI, showing clips of manufacturing too. A good episode and your plane brings it to "in scale" life!
  It sure looks great now all done, I.M. Envious!

Nice job all round Colin. The fourth photo really shows it off well...... Revell Spad XIII 1/28th scale 1705482731

Interesting point: While your kit box art diffeers to mine, they share the same kit number but have a different decal set. Mine are for Marcel Coadou or Eddie Rickenbacker!!

Thanks for the comments guys.

Al, this decal set is for either 1/Lt. Long or Capt. R. Soubiran, both 3rd Pursuit group, ASAS.


I'll be getting another of these models as Elaine has set me a task of replicating this showbird.

Beautiful work Colin. That new red white and blue job looks interesting, one would really notice this one entering the battle.
