I seem to have abnormal levels of enthusiasm at the moment, so after the Tripe was finished I've dived straight into the VMC updated and laser cut version of the old Aerographics Blackburn Monoplane kit. I actually had the original version pretty much finished, but it got smashed to atoms in the house move when I left Chesterfield. There is hardly any stripwood in the new version. Just about everything is laser cut. Very impressed so far...

Cheers,

Dan.

A nice bit of joint work on the tail of the VMC version .... I'll have to dig out my VMC Eindecker to see if that has been given the same treatment.  Smiley

I'm looking forward to seeing this one come together as it has always struck me as rather ... difficult.

Also looking forward to the  Mellor treatment of this. Lurk, I didn’t find it a hard build so I’m sure you wouldn’t either.
Incidentally, on mine, I lengthened the u/c and shortened the king post, which (in my eyes anyway) greatly enhanced the scale look.
