1/72 Entex SE5a

This is the Entex kit of the SE5a which I built pretty much straight from the box.

I added a gunsight, windscreen and of course the rigging.  I also sanded down some of the heavier details.   Markings represent a machine from No. 24 Squadron R.A.F. and were put together from various Microscale sheets.

Not a bad kit, even though there are slight shape errors to the tail surfaces and the Lewis gun is a little oversize.  It sure looks like an SE5a when done.
