Wow that tiny Boomerang is very well done!

You've captured the essence of that aircraft perfectly and in such a small scale that's quite a feat!

You've got a real talent for 1/144 which isn't an easy scale to work in, especially for single-engine aircraft!

Once again you've finished up quite a little gem. That racing scheme looks great!

That was painful, but the 1/144 O/400 is rigged (as much as I'm doing anyhow) and as far as I'm concerned finished. And a size comparison shot with my Lancaster

That thing is HUGE considering it's a WW1 bomber! :o Also, good job with the rigging! :smiley:

Beautiful job of rigging; I doubt I could do near as well in 1/72 or even 1/48.

I've got a real soft-spot for small scale aircraft and few build them as well as you!

I especially like that little red Dr.1!

Great stuff!

Whoa so tiny !

Yet looks so good.  Do you have good eyes or a very good magnifier ?

I find 1/72 scale serials are my limit these days and that's with x1.5 magnifiers on my glasses !

The rigging on the O/400 is also impressive

Holy cow given how small a Sopwith Camel is in 1/72, to build it in 1/144 you must've used the electron micro-visor!

You even did the rigging which warmed the cockles of my black biplane heart.  :-*

One of your most amazing modeling feats yet, Cam! Three cheers!

Hip! Hip! Huzzah!!!
