Thanks for the feedback and links folks.  Plunge taken after seeing the HS build-up yesterday.  I blame "Evil Michael," but since everyone else is so positive, I suppose I may not regret the buy.

Don, please post pics of yours when you finish it up!

Take the plunge, Ken. 

Mine arrived about two weeks ago, and it is a superb kit?rivals WNW. Kostas, our man in Greece, has done a fine job with the kit, decals, instructions, etc., etc., etc., I'll build the Polish version (duh!)?if I live long enough.

Get some of his exquisite turnbuckles as well?FINALLY someone has figured out how to produce 3D turnbuckles that aren't just straight tubes. Live long, Kostas

Hi, Kenneth. Here are a couple more builds currently underway. IMHO, you can't go wrong with this kit. Best 1/48 scale injected WWI kit ever.

I am currently in the process of building the Gaspatch Salmson and the kit is as good as they say. The fuselage has gone together perfectly. My only trouble at the moment are the cabane struts which are necessarily thin (they are rooted down to the floor of the cockpit) and I have clumsily broken one trying to get te top wing attached. Once I?ve sorted this out, the rest should be a doddle.
