Hi there

As usual from Jack Flash, truly wonderful models... all backed up with helpful historical and modelling notes! :-)

Of course, this has just whetted my appetite ... what I'd love to see is Jack Flash do us an on-line build of his next project... how about it Stephen?

Great stuff

Let me see...Do an on-line build...Hhhhmmm...current project. Let me ask this what would you folks like to see built? I'm just finishing a couple of 1/48 Roden Fokker D.VII and Eduard Sopwith Camel types. Next will probably be the Roden Nieuport 28. I have some pieces on stuff already done. What type would the members like to see built? STL

Hi Stephen

I'd like to see the new Roden Nieuport 28. :-)

It doesn't seem to have arrived in the UK yet, but an illustrated step-by-step build would be a great help to anyone tackling the kit. Not only that, but it would be a great way for you to explain some of the techniques you use for WW1 aircraft in general. :-)

All the best

Rowan

My personal favorites are the HUGE WWI bombers - you see those even less than fighters. Do you have any of those?

Side note:
you can see more of JackFlash's work here . Definitely worth a look.

Thanks!

Hello all; Per request my notes on the Roden Nieuport 28 have been posted. While not the final word on the subject is enough to get started. If you have any questions go there and I'll check in from time to time.Good luck. JackFlash
