First of all, I know I've been horribly inactive, and I would like to apologize to Kenji King for never finishing my contest entry. But anyway, I hope you enjoy the MOC!
About this creation
Sorry these pictures are a little blurry. It was cold, and I was in a bit of a rush.
The bracing and antenna wires are all official LEGO string.
Some of the cockpit detail. Believe it or not, it is possible to fit a minifigure in there, by slipping his legs in under the joystick. Though, I'm not really sure if the model is in minifigure scale in the first place. I think it's pretty close.
Dramatic shot. Yes, it is as cold as it looks outside. Come to think of it, I should have made this the main picture.. Oh well.

very nicely done! i love it when people make un-famous aircraft.
Thanks! Yeah, I think it's a good idea to pick something not a lot of people have already done, especially since there are so many plane builders out there who could just blow me out of the water. Or,to keep with the theme, blow me out of the sky. :P my favorite 'underdog' plane would have to be the S.E. 5, though-- overshadowed by the sopwith camel despite the fact that the former had more kills per aircraft, I believe.

Great Work! Lovely colorscheme.
Thank you! I'm not sure if there were ever actually any Peashooters with exactly this scheme, as I can only find a drawing of one with this paint job. But, I thought this looked the nicest, fictional or not. :P
