      Model Scale: 1/8 Rating:  (3 votes - 4.67 average) Thanks: 0

      I recently purchased the 1/8 scale SE5a kit by Hasegawa on Ebay, and although it was missing the plans I was able to obtain a copy from a fellow modeller in Nevada City, California.

      I performed a complete inventory and all parts were in perfect condition, as was the wood and plywood sheets.

      This will be my second build in the series as I built the Sopwith Camel in early 2008. There is a thread following this build elsewhere in the site. In time, I aim to build the Fokker to complete the series. (The fourth kit- the Wright Flier- is 1/16 scale.)

      I have undergone a hiatus from modelling since my workshop was converted into another bedroom (!), but I have just rented a space in an industrial building near my home and office and made it into my workshop. Now work can began on my next three projects- the SE5a, a Pocher Rolls Royce, and the creme de la creme, HMS Vanguard.

      Gentlemen, start your engines!

    Thanks. That's all the photos I have taken but I can take some more. Is there anything in particular that you would like to see?

    Lots of close up cockpit , gun and fuselage photos please these builds are very rare on line and the more photos that are available the better.

    Hello I am from the UK. I have just had exactly the same problem! Why were the plans removed?! Did you know on Ebay? I am currently 'talking' to the seller! Do you know how I could get a copy of the pages ( in English!)

    Many thanks

    Hi Richard,

    I just stumbled across this site and joined up right away to view all the photos of your build. It is just fantastic. Your photos and comments will be such a help when I start my build.

    Seeing your final results makes providing those plans to you, well worth the effort. My hat is off to you.

    Hey Tony, A belated welcome to the site to you. Looks like this one got by me.

    Hey Bill. Welcome to the site. I'm glad to see some more aircraft builders here. I look forward to seeing your work.

    Hey guys,

    I just happened to check into the forum today and saw your posts. I have not been modeling since I finished the SE5a as I have been concentrating on building furniture for a change.

    Bill, welcome to the site, and thanks for the compliments. Your plans were greatly appreciated and I was able to pass on the honor when Tony M (in the UK) was missing his set. So in a way your plans have passed from the US to Canada and are now residing in the UK!

    Isn't that exactly what model forums are all about?

    I will definitely check in from time to time to see how you are getting on, and if you need any help avoiding the pitfalls, you have my email address.
