10226 Sopwith Camel Modification
Finished tweaking my 10226 set to make it more accurate to the real thing... I redid the fuselage, narrowed it to 6 studs, shorted it by about 4 studs, and added a few plates in height... The lower wings are now diheadral and the upper wing was raised by ~1brick... The support rigging actually helps strengthen the wings now and are under tension. Without them the wings can pivot back and forth. It is very stable in this design... The wheel frame is still a little too tall, but I couldn't come up with a clean way to reduce the height and not sacrifice the shock absorber function... The propeller was lengthen by 2 studs, the upper wing cutout altered. I maintained (improved actually) the aileron/elevator function. Elevators are smoother now and I found that removing the rubber bands from the airelon helped a lot (since each counter the other, they are not really needed)

Nice! Would look great out on a golf course, just like the old airfields they used back in the day. Well done!
