Se-5A Eduard 1/48

This one took me more than 6 months. Beautiful kit like all Eduard's "profipack". Biplanes are a little bit tricky to build, but with care and patience you can have a proper result.

Thanks guys
what is the rigging wire?
Fishing line, the finest I can find, painted dark metal , too much dark in this case IMO.

Wow. Truely beautiful. The surface colouring and weathering is all amazing. the airscrew is particularly impressive.

This turned out terrific. Really nice work. Rigging in this scale scares me. I really like the turnbuckles.
