Not a subject that floats my boat Eric but that's looking neat and tidy.

Thanks Mick.

I was was hoping to have this one ready for QMHE last weekend, but halfway through rigging the model, I had to drop everything because this happened:

needless to say, once the dust had cleared, I was able to slip back into the man cave when nobody was watching and I spent a few hours finishing off this wonderful model. I rigged it with EZ-line and kept it simple by adding Bobs buckles brass tube. A hell of a challenging build due to its complex nature. Better photos soon!

Thanks guys.

Here is my recently completed Balilla. No major additions or modifications apart from EZline rigging and Bobs Buckles Brass tubing turnbuckles. Many thanks to Richard and his crew for producing a fine kit of a rare type.

Not heavily in to biplanes & never even heard of this aircraft, but that's a lovely job :). Congrats on the baby too ;).
