All comments are warmly welocomed.

    The camel is looking really nice. I'm not a 'plane buff so can't comment technically - but how about some rivits and seam details which give that lovely retro charm? I'm sure you're getting there. Look forward to seeing more.

    looks very, very nice so far.....

    I'd also be curious how you did your wings to give the appearanc of fabric covering... i did a model of an early curtiss racer, and to get that effect, i atually "covered" the wing ribs and such, shrinking the "fabric" down when i smoothed... so i'm curious how you achieved that effect.. yours looks good...

    here's what i got:

    Both are awesome. Don't forget oil spray textures for the pilot faces ! :coolcheese:

    Fantastic engine detail on the Curtis. The fabric wings look great on both.
