It has been a tough year for me, I lost my father on September 11 (cancer finally got the better of him), home life and work pressures have meant that it has been almost 12 months since I picked up a kit, let alone raised the Xacto in anger! I have been stalking Kitmaker frequently, but not contributing as much as I would like.
Last night I dragged out a kit that has been in the stash for quite a few years and has some personal significance to me. My review and sprue shots can be seen HERE.
My grandfather brought the prop hub from a Sopwith Camel (130 Clerget variant) back from WWI so I want to build an enclosed display with the hub, a 1/8th scale model of the Clerget 130 engine, and a model of the F1 Camel. I have an old 1/28th Revell Camel kit that I started many years ago (see KoTS 2011) so I will have to drag it out and see what state it is in after several moves. I am also eyeing off the WNW 1/32nd Clerget Camel at the LHS as it has an Aussie marking option.
With humble apologies for my lengthy absence, and for the lengthy intro, let the fun begin.
As always, any feedback, constructive criticism and advice is most welcome.
