    Finally found time to finish a model - first one in quite some time. I built the Curtiss Jenny straight from the Fiddlers Green WWI CD. I really like the Navy coloring scheme.

    The only "surprises" that I found where 1) the markings on the wings for the strut locations don't line up correctly on both wings and 2) the cabane struts were about 2mm too short (or the interplane struts were too long!). Otherwise the model went together without too much stress. Enjoy the pics.

    Clean, crisp - FG should have it as a poster child for the kit.

    I agree with all above,

    A very clean and good-looking build! So well-balanced and straight.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Best,
