Yes I will have to get this one as well ! Not a bad choice for the markings either . Nice and colourful !

I still don't know if I will do a Camel or Fokker for the Campaign Maybe even both

Would be nice to see you build this on line for us kind folk Stephen .

The Dual Combo Dr.I dropped through my door from Hannants the other day along with a Profi Camel bought for the "Camel / Dr.I group build". . . both look awesome, I actually feel quite nervous about tackling either.

The 1/48th Camel makes the Academy 1/32 scale Camel look about 49 years out of date.

it is incredible to see the difference between the detail and production quality and improvements in these and the old D.Va Terri built recently. *not your build quality Terri but the standard of the kit itself.

Added.... by the time the group build starts that new streaked camo decalling system might be out and save us a lot of grief

Thanks:)

Anyway, time is limited at his moment, so I try to spend it more on buidling instead typing behind the PC. Do not worry though I check this section very reguraly, but posting is limited. I also am a bit reluctant to post my results, cause I do know they are all but perfect.

Now back to Roden's Junkers D1 (what a nice kit)

Cheers, Nico
