    Billy Bishop

    Post  Ray on Thu May 20, 2010 10:45 pm

    Hi everyone, I have this one on my work bench as well Twisted Evil

    He'll follow Werner's footsteps, that is, he'll be temporarily fixed to the base (Werner's base actually) and wage battle in Class 1 in Folkestone.

    He'll join his mount, the Neuport NE17, after Euro if the decals would have arrived lol!

    This is also produced by Model Cellar and again it was sculpted by the able hands of Mike Good in 1/32nd Scale.

    The only addition was the cigarette in his left hand, cut from 0.2mm copper wire and stuck with wet MS between the index and middle fingers for a comfortable sit. You can work out the diameter of the cigarette 0.2mm x 32 Laughing

    I had to be very careful not to end up with a cuban cigar, so it is just a fraction undersize, however the undercoat and subsequent coatings of paint would compensate for the tickness just right pirat

    Ray, this is just my opinion but this figure is really lovely and i think that it is better than Werner. Mike good is amazing and he is producing some very beautiful figures in 32nd scale for us plane freaks. This is going to look really great. i love his relaxed pose, it is so natural and also the garb he is wearing, shoud really look nice after your usual, high class treatment.

    It's gonna be hard mate. For me, you set up a benchmark to yourself with Werner, but I'm sure you'll succeed to break it.

    MY advice: Don't go into the project with the thought to make it better than Werner!

    Just go into the project, become one with it, and be YOU. Nothing more!
