The Sopwith Camel Kit
The story actually begins in October 2009 when My beloved bought for My birthday a 1/16th scale, highly detailed, model kit of the Sopwith Camel. Not a huge surprise, because, despite My advancing years I had been on about it like a little boy for weeks. For those of you with an impatient disposition here is a picture of the kit as completed by the manufacturer.
Whether or not mine ends up looking like this remains to be seen, but more of that anon.
To date I have only built the propeller (As shown in the header), and am progressing on the engine, as I have decided to document each stage of the build in separate steps I shall not bore you with the details here. This is not intended to be a fast build, it has to fit in with a full time job, domestic duties, other building projects. And, to do the finished version justice, will only tackled when the right lighting and the constructive mood are upon Me.
Consequently it could be months, even years before completion, and the updates will be as and when I feel I have completed a significant step, rather than a religiously kept diary. For My own amusement, and hopefully yours the minutiae of life and other projects may, from time to time, grace these pages.
