This was a very nice kit to build with very little flash and nice PE extras.  It included PE turnbuckles for the rigging, but they were a little beyond my capability, so I left them off.

The Lloyd was unique in that it was plywood construction with fabric only used on the flaps.  It was primarily a reconnaisance aircraft and used to direct artillery fire.  Only 150 were built and they were found to suffer from warpage due to condensation inside the wing structures.















Thanks for looking,
Mike

Nice job Mike, the wood grain looks terrific.

I don't blame you one little bit in not installing the turnbuckles, I wouldn't have used them either for the sake of my sanity!!! LOL

Beautiful build! The wood grain is so impressive, plus the detailing at this scale, excellent.
