WW1 SPAD Squadron




Totally new subject for me, bit tricky coordinating the airbrushing and assembly but now learnt the lessons for next time. These are 1/72 Revell kits, only additions being the wing cable struts. As always click on the pictures for full fat versions, more detailed pictures up on my flickr gallery

Sweet!!! May I ask where you got the camo pattern from? Need to a few of those soon, too! (In 1:48 though.)

Cheers,

Thanks guys, would love to do one of those WW1 bombers!

Burkhard, hello again, the schemes were replicated from the ones shown in the Revell instructions. From my research i understand these were standard schemes from the factory, correct me if i'm wrong, as it would have been easier to do each different! the decal set only allowed for one aircraft letter "V" IIRC so i had to find the nearset match for a set. In the end these were from a 15mm Spad set from Doms Decals (white letters only).
