Wow, my first review. I am officially a contributor !

Thanks for putting this one up Rowan, I hope some of you guys find it useful. I am looking forward to building this one for the Great War Campaign starting November 11 this year.

Nice review Damian

Timely too, I was just thinking of buying this.. had my cursor hovering over it on the Hannants website last night.

This is of course the engine from the old Hasegawa 1/8th Camel and I see the Le Rhone is scheduled for release too. They'd make a nice pair.

Damian,
Forgive the (probably, I've been away for 10 days) silly question. The Great War Build Campaign in November? Have I completely missed it or is it associated with the "other" site?
Cheers,
Lance

Hi Lance.

The Campaign Page is HERE , and it is associated with the "other" site as you said, but it encompasses all genres and should be very popular.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. Now comes the acid test, I just hope I can build just as well as I can write about it

Cheers, D
