My 1/24th scale SE5a is finished after the airworthy example maintained by the Shuttleworth Collection in Bedfordshire. The model used the white metal radiator and vac-formed wings and fuselage of the old Black Knight (Contrail) kit, but the rest is scratch built. The Windsock Datafile Special and Datafile 10 provided invaluable reference, and the completed model featured in Windsock International magazine's Autumn 2006 edition.
