Not much to look at yet, but I'm working on it a little at a time. Still need to do a little rescribing to bring out some of the panel lines, and there is a little reshaping to be done to the nose to get the parts to line up and blend together better.

Lots of little gaps to fill in, but the parts fit together well enough. I'm just going out of box for this one. Not going to weather it as its got a really colorful paint scheme and I'm not working in the house.

Just thought I'd let you fellers know I'm still alive, lol.

Just a little update. I've got the undercarriage attached. A few more gaps filled.





Progress is progress, right? lol

I blasted a bit of primer on it this morning before leaving for work. I did okay and only had a couple of spots on the tail to lightly sand down. I think I need to spend just a little more effort on some of the panel lines. A few of them don't look right just yet.







So I don't think I can get away with assembling all of it before painting. Some of the pieces will require attention before I can add the top wing, which needs the radiator details scratch built because none are provided.

Thanks for reading this tripe, my friends lol. Have a good one!

Looking good! Interesting to see how you tackle this model (I'm sure that the result will be great) For the moment I'm rigging a 1/48 Sopwith Camel and I can only imagine the kind of patience (and steady hands) needed for 1/72.

Will follow this extra close since I have an Albatros in the pipeline.

(tips hat) Gentlemen, thank you very much. [smile]

I don't think its all that challenging lol. I'm using stretched sprue from the kit for the rigging. The only thing tough about that it getting the length right. But then, there's always more sprue if I run out. Thankfully the styrene the kit is made from makes for some wonderful lengths of fine wire. [wink] That's what I used for the rigging on the landing spars and I think that looks okay.

My concern right now is that half of my supplies are in another box that I haven't dug out yet, so I may have some trouble scratching up the lower side of the radiator as I want to do. The instructions are really vague about how the radiator hoses attach to the fuselage and that's something I'll have to do a little research on. Then I'll pull out a paper clip and make new ones, as the kit supplied hoses have not held up so well over the years and the mold lines are rather thick and distort them something awful. Better to just replace them with wire that won't go out of round on me.

Not much to report today. Haven't touched it yet lol.

I thought the landing spars were kit parts! IN fact, they are in a manner of speaking. nice work.

This morning I put the wheels together and flattened the tires a smidge to give them a properly weighted look. I also decided the propeller hub needed to be reshaped as well. All of the references I've been using show this piece to be more rounded off and not nearly as pointy as the kit piece is, right off the sprue.

So far, so good.
