1/48 Eduard Hanriot HD-1

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.
