Hi @GuyOReilly

Here are photos of Glenn's magnificent Sopwith Camel.

(First photo is @frank harvesting arboreal airplane plantings.  It has nothing to do with your choice of aircraft covering, but you need to know that there are dangers lurking in "them thar woods"! If your plane is too pretty..... 8) )

I never would have recognize @Frank v B from that angle...

The pictures are (of course) beautiful of the Camel from @glenh .
I am leaning toward the Kempf colour scheme at this time...  But then again, it is early in the game and other projects to finish first.
On a positive note, I received a note from Customer Service at Banggood offering a $50.00 refund for sending the wrong kit. 
Great customer service I must say, all in all a positive experience.

Hi @GuyOReilly ,

Are they going to send the correct (Tiger Moth) kit ??!

@Andy Hoffer , nope, no new kit.
Just the $50.00 CAD refund.
That is okay, I will order the Tiger Moth later...  The Fokker DR-1 is now 1/2 price, no so bad.  ;D
It will need a new cowling, and I will need to figure out the fuselage construction as there are no plans,   ???  but all in due course.  ;)

Het @GuyOReilly,

And you get three instead of two.  So three wings for the price of 1/2 wing!  :D

Hi @GuyOReilly ,

I have had the priviliege of seeing @Frank v B on a variety of ladders from all angles, and I can definitely attest to the authenticity of this perspective on Frank (photo 1859 - http://temac.ca/smf/index.php/topic,7743.msg52140.html#msg52140).  This is the real deal!!  ;D
