Roy Brown's Sopwith Camel Finished

Postby Morris » Sat Oct 10, 2020 8:45 pm

Another Revell 1/28 blast from the past.....I can't find anymore decals for Roy Brown's Camel so I printed my own to augment the kit ones....he had 4-5 different schemes so I chose the one most linked to his fight with Richthofen....on page 1 working on the fuselage before I pre-install rigging and close the halves up....

I completed the rudder but I should have white outlined the numbers where they intersect the red and blue areas. My mistake :angry-banghead:

Continued along the instructions, small steps - mainly landing gear and wings. Had to paint the upper wing chevron as I struggled creating a decal.

Top wing on. I struggled big time with the centre struts - a Camel's top wing has a sort of reverse dihedral and Revell didn't mould this very well - finally forced it all together - rigging now to do :( :?

Almost finished - didn't seal my seams as well as I should - stain found and accentuated them - wished I had stuck with black rigging throughout too -

You've nailed that one Morris. Very atmospheric. Love the painting of the prop too. Superb!!
