    Building Hawker’s Bristol Scout.

    This would be a good build for a novice.




    Clean up the casting.
    Clean out the strut holes with a suitable drill.
    Position wings and struts.



    This time I used wire pins for cabine struts to strengthen the wings.



    Pop in the pins for cabine struts.
    I removed the pilot with a piercing saw.
    Replace pilot with Lt. Hawker and his gun.



    Glue on top wing.



    After cutting off the heads, place cabine pins and glue.



    File down strut tops and wet and dry wings for fine finish.
    Fit undercart.



    Spray white undercoat.
    Paint plane
    Fit the prop.
    Apply decals. Use micro set and micro sol as per instructions.



    Varnish to taste.



    Not a bad one to do. Even with the change of pilot it only took a day to complete.
    Lt Hawker was by Reviresco with the soft gun barrel replaced by a piece of brass wire.

    Rob.
