It was a real challenge rigging this small plane, but well worth the effort, considering the difference it makes in the finished model. It was truly difficult to choose a marking scheme. Each scheme was unique and would have looked great on the finished plane. This may be my final attempt at building 1:72 aeroplanes. Sharp eyes and steady hands I no longer possess.

The view looking at front is especially realistic.  Thanx for the effort.  I understand the demands of working in a small scale.  Many use lighted magnifier lamps these days.  Your work is much appreciated for its variety and quality.

Thanks gents.
Paul: I know just what you mean. For better or worse, I just went through my stash and found I have another eight kits in 1:72. But only two of them will have the option of rigging.
Harron: I use magnifying glasses myself from a company in Japan; Hazuki Loupe. I find them very helpful. Thank you for the compliment.

Don't give up on it, Cole. Your paintwork is beautiful. Working in 1/72 is quite trying. Step back to take a good look at them and you'll see they're quite nice.

Fantastic job on that one, sir.

Wow great stuff! Nice little display. I am definately going to have to get some 1/72 scale planes.

I read Eddie Rickenbacker's book about battling Richtofen's Flying Circus, so I had to check this one out! Your work is worthy!
