Bravo - we all need more of that from time to time.

Shame on you for not naming: 'any 1/72 some_WWI_plane' :-)

As long as we're confessing, I have 2 other models on my bench I didn't
mention, mainly because they're complete except for rigging. I like to sit
down and do several A/C at once. That way I can put one wire on each in
succession while the others are drying. usually I do 3 or 4 at once.

The other 2 are: an Airfix Re-8 and Avro 504K Night Fighter conversion from
the Airfix 2-cockpit trainer kit. I filled in the extra cockpit, added a
wing mounted lewis gun - up-engined it with an aeroclub engine, modified the
cowling slightly, etc.
