This is the 1/48
scale kit out of the box, non-Profi version.
The model represents
the aircraft as flown by S.Lt Willy Coppens, 9e Escadrille, May, 1918.

The model was
painted with a mix of Floquil and Humbrol enamels. I chose not to use the decal
provided for the blue and white tail markings, painting it instead. The only
changes to the kit were to cut out and deflect the control surfaces and to add
rigging with heat stretched sprue. I also added a fuel filler cap on the spine
from a disc punched out of styrene card.
Fantastic kit, easy
to construct and a great value.
