Just finished the Monogram kit of Tom Daniel's Red Baron. Scratchbuilt some parts but not that many. It was a fun build and the kit wasn't as bad as I expected.
Hope you guys like it :)

I always thought this was a cool looking kit.ive never built one personally but I hope to one day and I think you did a great job with it. Just curious but what are all the parts you scratch built, everything looks like its all supposed to be right where it is?

Thanks everyone. If you want to build one, just do it ;) The kit isn't as far as bad as you would expect.

Just curious but what are all the parts you scratch built, everything looks like its all supposed to be right where it is?

The kit comes with 2 imo terrible, out of scale spandau. I threw them away and scratchbuilt one myself on the passenger side. I also made some kind of 'steering' for the spandau in the interior, but it's barely visible on the pictures. The grill is opened and I made a new intake with 3 pieces of tank munition :)

Nice job on the Baron as I built one years ago and wish that I still had it. Doesn't the helmet come chrome plated anymore like it used to? I have been thinking about building another one, however I also think about building everything else under the sun too.

Thanks to all of you guys :)

Nick: I don't know if you can call it chrome, but yes the helmet comes plated :D I removed it for aesthetic reasons. And besides, the real Red Baron's helmet isn't in chrome, but (flat) aluminium ;)
