    Hope for the Red Baron we are to see the mythical Triplane!

    Would be nice to have a duo, lothar and Manfred and their mounts together, as Lothar's is another colourful piece, yellow and red ...

    Enzo's mount is another nice piece ... remember the pony on his sides, the same one we see on those red sport cars ... Cool
    During Catania show the Euronautica made a nice display about him and his ponies ... did you have a look?

    Here is the progress so far on the Nie17, I have removed all ribs and re-done these with styrene plastic strips. Next step is to apply filler and shape the ribs to the desired effect.

    Great work on this one so far, I will definitely be watching your progress on this one. I have always had an interest in World War I aviation which just really got rekindled recently.

    Here are some up-date photos of work on the Nie17 so far.

    The resin detail set is from MasterCasters and is a real beauty. The Le Rhone 110-120hp engine is from Vector models.

    Prosit Joe, what a masterpiece (Yet another one) in the making. I love the stuff from mastercasters, i think that their products are great. Beautiful detailing, the engine looks really beautiful. well done, show us more.
