I tend to leave the hardest for last. So the last to be constructed and primed (though it will remain white with a light gray camouflage) was the cantilevered Nieuport Triplane. Yikes, this was deconstructed more times than I care to think about. The other Tris were a bear, as was getting the Fokker tails decent looking, but this plane was the worst.
Of course, upon announcing the construction phase was finally over, my dear wife reminded me that I hadn't done a Russian plane. So the last plane done was actually a Nieuport with the gun over the top wing. Comrade Krebikov flies again.
Curse you Ken Van Pelt. We will meet someday at dawn over the Western Front.
