Ted, Mike - Thanks a lot!

I must admit  that I always thought of these kind of decals as "cheating" a short cut to the end result. But after I spent x hours working with them I can tell you that I consider my self proven wrong! [biggrin] It's in no way any easier than say oils it's just another type of technique. Working on it gave me an idea, next time I do something like this I'm thinking of to do the base layers like I did here and then use the oil technique on one panel at a time to get random looking wood grain.

Another short update, decals are on!



I'm not sure about what kind of finish I should use on the "plywood", gloss, satin or flat? the way it looks now when it's very glossy makes it look very toyish and plastic (- no s**t Sherlock, it's styrene [biggrin]). But maybe a flat coat will take away the varnished look?  What do you guys think?

While researching the glossiness of the fuselage I found this footage, thought I should share it. Very impressive, that's what called hand made!.

Nice movie, that's a real GB :-). Can't advice you on the final coat. It looks great on the pictures with the gloss varnish but you're in charge ;-)

I settled with flat on metal and fabric, and satin on the fuselage. To my eyes it makes it look a little more real at the same time as it still reflects some light to get a varnished look.

I think you got it. that satin on the fuselage is perfect. That's the same plan I came up with for my tiny crate as well. I just haven't gotten there yet. I may throw a full gloss on the propeller, but that's the only place I might do that.

Looks amazing!

Thanks for the input guys!

Looking at it now I'm convinced that I made the right decision.

I got a question about rigging, so here are pictures about how I make it. It's one of many techniques but it's the one I like. Fiddly..yes but it's quite easy and I think it gives a good result.

To start I twist thin copper wire (from a speaker cable) around a broken 0,3mm drill bit. Cut off the excess and glue it in a predrilled 0,35mm hole.


The elastic line I use are from Uschi and this time I bought pre cut tubing from albion alloys. Then it's just a matter of threading the line thru the tube and the copper loop and back thru the tube. Pull tight and fixate with a drop of CA. Cut off the excess line and voilĂ !


I always attach the lines to the top wing before it's joined with the aircraft, makes it easier to reach.

Thanks for looking

Thanks guys!

Now she stands on her own wheels, also got the tailplane attached.


And all of the rigging are prepared on the top wing


Next I will paint the radiator also got some nice PE for it, then...wing alignment, always an interesting step!

Cheers!

There is no way I can replicate this in 1/72. This is far too amazing in its detail. My hat is off to you sir.

Thank you a lot guys, but I think you can keep the hats on for the moment [smile] I managed to screw up a strut when I attached the wing. Everything went real smooth but I thought it looked just a bit out of alignment, so I gave it a little push and apparently wasn't so easy on the hand and...[bawl]
 

It's kind of fixed but the damage is still visible, feels terrible after such a problem free build.


Anyhow here's a pic of the PE on the radiator I spoke of
