A Fiddly Build
The 1/48 scale brings out much of the finer detail of this classic WW1 fighter. I note from the Revell box that this was given a 'Level 4', meaning a more difficult build which I found to be correct, and the kit comes with a few criticisms: 1 - there are a lot of parts on the sprues which didn't form part of this kit, which was confusing. 2 - trying to line up the internal cockpit framework previously glued to one half of the fuselage to the other half, made up of 7 parts, was very fiddly to achieve. 3 - I had similar problems in lining up the 8 struts to attach the lower to the upper wing. This would have been a lot more easier with a front elevation printed in the instructions showing the angles that the struts need to be fixed & glued to the upper wing, or better still a temporary template that are used in other kits (Airfix). In all a rather hit & miss affair which had me shouting at the kit !! 4 - Disappointed to find no pilot is included in the kit either. I think I'll try the same model with a different manufacturer to see if I can achieve better results.
