Revell Model Kit  1/28 Scale

     I actually built this model when I was about 13 or 14 years old. It is the plabe that Captain A. Roy Brown was flying when he supposedly shot down Manfred, Baron Richtoffen, aka "The Red Baron." Not bad for a kid. It was fully rigged and I had even built little wire eyelets for the wires to tie onto. Sadly the years were unkind to this model, and in storage it was broken into quite a few pieces. Of course it became a tangled mess of threads. I finally resoted it about 25 years later. It wasn't easy!
