Hi all!

Thought I would do this one as a photo build.

Box art


Only two sprues



But some included PE


Decals and masks


The lozenge decals looks really nice, however I will not use them in this build since I'm going for these markings


I will try another approach to replicate wood on this one. I've used oils before, but this time I got my hands on some decals from Uschi. Will be interesting to see what kind of result I will manage to get with these


Will start by painting all interior wood panels using the oil technique, so they will have time to dry while I push on with the rest of the interior. Will share photos as soon as I made any progress.

Happy modelling!

Oh, sah-weet! Those wood decals should make easy work of those schemes. Gorgeous subject by the way. [wink]

I'd love to build one of these in a larger scale eventually. 1/72 is a bit of a favorite, but for these aircraft it is a bit of a strain lol.

Very much looking forward to keeping tabs on this one, Doc!  [biggrin]

Thanks Ted and Mike

I hope I can make something nice with those decals.

Mike - Must admit that your build inspired me to pick this one from the stash[smile][thumb]. I can imagine how small they are in 1/72, I would love to do one of Wingnut Wings in 1/32 but the price tag and scale puts me off (like how all my builds are in 1/48, easy to get a feel of the size differences on the shelf [smile]).

So, on to the first proper update

As I said started to replicate some wood, this technique have been showed about a million times so why not one more time [biggrin]!?

First step acrylic base colour. This time I did some subtle shading


Then onward with oils, experimented with darker colours were I shaded the base



The shading is subtle but I think it adds a little extra. It's a bit more pronounced in the fuselage


The pre coloured PE wood panel looks like this


Not really what I'm after so I gave that piece the same treatment, hopefully it will blend in better with the rest of the cockpit


And finally a pic of the prop. Will spray heavily diluted transparent orange on top when it dries, to simulate varnish


That's all for now, thanks for looking!

Wow, that's pretty! I'd love to get my hands on one of Peter Jackson's Wingnut kits. Those kits seem to be the epitome of WWI aircraft. Price is out of my range as well, unfortunately.

Your wood grain looks better than mine, for sure. Excellent progress so far and I eagerly await for the next installment!

Thank you very much Mike!

Don't know if mine looks better but I shure got more space to play with [smile]

Thanks Neil!

Don't mind at all, just happy to be able to share.

I painted a base coat of AK's wood base I then mask with 1mm masking tape trying to be true to references, followed by AK's wood grain. After that I used the same technique with oils as with the other bits and pieces.

Hope that's to some help

Very nice work. Seems like the WWI is getting more attention, love it :-). And the wood turned out very nice, thanks for showing!

Thanks a lot Fabian! Yeah I really like to do these planes, it's so many different techniques involved and a different order to the build compared to what I'm used to.

Since the engine need to be in place before joining the fuselage halves, I decided to do the engine next

Did some minor extra detailing by adding spark wires


Also wrapped the intake manifold with thin masking tape trying to replicate heat insulation seen on certain reference pics. Maybe a bit crude but I like the effect, looks better on normal viewing distance [smile].


And the result after paint, washes and pigments



The oils are dry so next up... the cockpit

Thanks for looking!
