Steve,

    Congratulations on making a 1/72 scale build after 3 years.  All we need
now is pictures!  Speaking of pictures!  Where are your pictures of the
Phonix C.1, Michael Kendix? ;^)

Last night I did the first plastic modeling I've done in over three years.

I added a prop & wheels to a 1/72 Br.14and then rigged the entire wing
celule. All that is left is to add a tailskid and the rigging and control
wires for the tailfeathers

The model is done in 5 color French camo and Polish markings for Esk. Br.39
(The dancing flower girl)

Had no problems. Stretching sprue is like bicycle riding in that the skills
come right back. Only burned through 2 wires. It was a tough rig as the
Breguet uses several sizes of flying wired which necessitated some special
sprue stretching and many of the runs are unique to the type.

Not sure which old hangar queen is next, but i need to finish a few projects
before starting a new model.
