One more for the road...from a 1936 Comet plan...enlarged from 15"ws to 18"ws...a BRISTOL F2B FIGHTER...build inspired by the wartime career of Canadian RFC Major Andrew E. McKeever, DSO, MC and Bar, DFC...31 aerial victories, all while flying the "BRISFIT."  Don't mess with McKeever! Angry

Thanks, Stoney.  Guillows had a series of WW1 models that they manufactured from 1957 until probably into the '70's...all had 18"ws.  The Sopwith Snipe was introduced as part of the series in 1963.  None of the series is available any longer from Guillows.  This was a build from their 1963 plan. 

The roundels are home-made tissue-cals...printed on white tissue...easy to make.

Beautiful! I didn't know Guillows made a Snipe. How did you do your roundels? They look great.

Last build of 2017...from a 1936 Comet plan...a Curtiss Falcon...modified to represent a Curtiss Falcon Mail Plane, ws 16".  Was an interesting build during which I educated myself concerning the evolution of some of the Curtiss in-line engines as well as the associated cooling efforts.  Also was a build in deference to my father's outstanding career in mail delivery.  A salute to you, Pop.

Hi Kerak !  I will start a Hangar - I'm still getting settled in, and trying to build and post and study everyone's models, and try to keep up with the latest replies to all  the builds etc.   Smiley
I have posted a few pics into my introduction, of the 20 planes I have on my shelving units in my apartment - just for an overview of them all sitting beside each other - I like looking at them up there  ....  Roll Eyes  BUT, is there ever a lot of dust to clean off all of the time ...  Lips Sealed

Thank you LW for the kind words.  While I'm certainly not a "perfect modeler," this hobby has been perfect for me.  Wink  As a kid I used to watch B-29's fly low over my little house on their landing approach at the local air base...and I guess the effect of seeing that beauty stuck with me "real good."

I see from some of the photos you've posted...that you have a real collection yourself.  I particularly like that Pfalz DIII...that's a beauty.  I'd like you to start a hangar so I can see more!  Smiley

Again...thanks for the compliment.

Well, HELLO Kerak !!  I finally just figured out how to get to "Hangar Space", under "The Stick & Tissue Hangar", which is halfway down the main "Stick and Tissue Forum" page.  Your Hangar Barn, full of super builds, is nothing short of sensational!!  The planes are all impeccable!  I need more time to study them more carefully ...
