Biplane Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5a in 1:14

Dear cardboard modelers!
For the following report, I apologize for the strange English.
The English I learned in school is not good enough,
to give it here in writing from me.
Therefore I use the translation software DEEPLE.

After the Fokker Dr I from Casalta in 1:14
I would like to start today with the
the S.E.5a from the same publisher in the same scale.

I have also built this model some years ago.
some years ago. At that time I knew nothing about it,
that you can improve the visual effect of a cardboard model by coloring the edges and folds.
to improve the optical effect of a cardboard model.

At the end of this report I will show both models for comparison.

Scale: 1:14
10 pages with parts on high gloss, relatively thin cardboard.
2 pages with parts on gray, solid cardboard.
2/3 pages with pre-cut reinforcement parts
1/3 pages with pre-cut thin but very strong former parts

36 sketches for each step of construction.

Short building instructions in English, Spanish, German and French

Two small remarks beforehand:

While building the current model, I was surprised over and over again
how much I had to delve into the building instructions again, even though I had
I had already understood and implemented the model and the building techniques years ago.

The second remark refers to the - from my point of view - completely
chaotic arrangement of the part numbers on the individual sheets.
I still spend minutes searching for individual parts.
Whether there is a system in the arrangement of the part number is not apparent to me.
Here are first some pictures of the construction sheet:

And off we go:

I will report on the individual construction stages in such a way again,
that I show sketches from the illustrated building instructions together with photos of my
of my assemblies.

The construction of the fuselage is easy and quick.

Wie immer sehr gute Arbeit Adolph.
Dieser Verlag hat schöne Grafiken.
Es macht immer Spaß, einem Doppeldecker zuzuschauen.
Grüße,
Mike

As always, very fine work Adolph.
This publisher has beautiful graphics.
It is always fun to watch a biplane.
Regards,
Mike

An impressive model of a famous aircraft, and an impressive display of your paper model building skill.

Excellent work. Always in awe of the large scale builders.
