I had put away this model a few times even though it`s a really pleasant kit to build. I`ve decided to finish it, before I start something new.




I would paint it in a different way if I were doing it now but I`ll still apply some oils to make it more interesting.





here are some more WiP pics:

Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin Copper State Models 1/48
It was a pleasant and a rather short build (due to good fit) and I must admit, I really enjoyed it.
It depicts the Dolphin C4168 of Major J.C. Callaghan, CO of 87 Sqn, Spring 1918
Painted with Tamiya and Mr.Color, artistic oils.
Rigging: EZ Line and fishing line.
For any 1/48th scale lovers - highly recommended.

Hi Filip

That's just fantastic! I always admire your work and this is just another great example of your talent! I'm afraid I stalled on this kit too after an encouraging start, (I totally blame the usual deluge of distractions that came with running Aeroscale back then ) so it's great to see you get back to it and prove just what a beauty it is!

All the best
