Kit: Encore (1:72)

Built for our club's display theme for 2014: "In The Movies"

The cowling was opened up and a Siemens 14 engine scratch-built to match the aircraft in the movie. The kit top wing has dihedral, which I removed, which of course means the cabane struts no longer reached the wing! Had I thought about this before I had fixed all the struts in place I could have rectified this properly, but in the event I just added a short piece of strut from the top of the V to the wing.

The lozenge decal is the same as used on the D.VII. The shield marking on the side was drawn on the computer as well, after a failed attempt at hand-painting it.
