Polish Air Force SE5a, Lindberg 1/48

Postby _BlackHawk_ » Thu Mar 14, 2019 8:50 pm

I had this kit in the stash for a very long time, but kept overlooking it because of rigging. However I broke it out recently and decided to have a crack. The kit is basic, but decent fitting. I only replaced the lewis gun with one from the stash which looks a lot better. I rigged it by threading knitting elastic and it worked pretty well. The aircraft depicts one of the 20 odd machines acquired by the Poles to fight their war of Independence against the Russians in February 1919. Decals came from my spares box.

Great job. I hate rigging too, but would love to do a Camel one day.
