Interior....done!

All pieces ready to be glued in place


Before joining the fuselage halves...


...and after. It's soo streamlined!!


The fit is great I only encountered one problem area the join between fuselage and the lower wing. Will have to solve that before I can work with the wood decals. That means that the area will be harder to reach when working with the decals.
 

Ok that's it for the moment. The kit has no separate control surfaces, so next mission is to cut them off so they can be positioned separately. But before that I need to clean my room [biggrin] 


Happy modelling!!

Been busy the last couple of days but yesterday I got some time by the bench. Cut of an repositioned the control surfaces. Also added the rod where the control wire attaches to the aileron ( don't have a clue about the correct term [confused]).


Sanded and rescribed the fuselage, and glued the lower wing in place. Started working on the gap with thin plasticard and melted styrene.


The fin is in place

Worked on the Spandau machine guns and there are some nice PE in this kit.

To start I had to roll the cooling jacket. I rolled it on a sanding sponge with a 1,6mm drill bit




The original part


And after a little PE magic [smile]


Thanks for looking!

Great progress Daniel! that gun looks really nice with the PE detail. Most often, I find that a single area of detail like that is the most pleasing thing about a build.

Time for an update

Got the fuselage and lower wing all filled, sanded and rescribed.


Primer applied to every part


My original thought was to start the paint job by doing the wood, but after I was forced to glue the lower wing in place I have decided to start painting the wings so I easily can mask them off before I continue with the fuselage

Under sides are ready. Started with a thin coat of light blue grey and masked the ribs


I then as I done with my other WWI planes sprayed a darker shade over the masking tape followed by a lighter highly diluted shade of the original colour between the ribs.


When the paint is fully cured I will spray some Klear and then continue with the top sides

Thanks for looking, hope you all get a great weekend!

Some pictures of the top side of the wings. Paints are mainly Vallejo IDF Green mixed with Panzer Olive and Alien Purple from their Game Air range mixed with Scarlett Red and White Grey



Never laid down this kind of colour, felt a bit crazy [crazy]. But I'm pleased with the result, not much references out there.



And a dry fit to get in the right mood [smile]


Also painted the Spandaus with flat black and just "dry brushed" them with a pencil


Will continue the painting and post my progress as we go, thanks for looking!
