Time for another build. This time a WWI fighter, don't think it needs any further introduction. My initial thought was to not make a WIP about this one, but I found that I learn a lot just by posting pictures of my work and I also seems to push myself a bit when there's the opportunity that someone else is watching [smile]

Will build this oob and with the supplied decals and paint scheme. I am a bit troubled about how to best make the "streaking camo" so if anyone have done it or have an idea please share!

On to the box and sprues

Started by painting the wooden parts, so the oils will have time to dry

Base layer of AK acrylics wood base, varnished wood and wood grain from their old & weathered wood vol.1 set.



Then I apply dots of raw sienna, ivory black and burnt umber oil paints


After dragging an old brush and/or a sponge moist with thinner in the direction of the grain this is the result




That's all for now. Thanks for looking!

looks like a "simple" but really effective method of creating a "wood grain" on styrene...wow

Yeah it is an easy way and it is so simple to vary the shades just by using different base colour or/and different oils, the look also depends on how much of the oils you remove. The only drawback is the drying time but that also means that you have plenty of time to get it right.

Just an one picture update. The oil paint is dry and I have been working on the cockpit, but all my focus shifted to the seat and it is as good as ready. Added belts made of masking tape and solder lead.



Thanks for watching!

Cockpit is ready and fuselage halves joined. Did some experiments with the streaking camo and I think brush painted enamels are going to do the job.

Anyway here are some pics of the cockpit

This is a very nice detailed build. The wood grain looks outstanding. Great job.

Thanks! I really enjoy building this one. It's nice to have a different build order than usual. You now the build-fill-sand-paint-decals-weather thing. Usually lose all mojo around the sanding stage and I have to wait a month or so to find the will to pick it up again [smile]. On this build I can do a little here and there which fits me perfectly

Time for an update

Painted various bits and pieces


The only join that needed filling


Close up of the machine guns. Eduard makes some nice PE for these but since its a weekend kit this will have to do


Repainted the prop since the laminated wood didn't look symmetrical on the two blades. After the oil wood grain had dried for a second time I gave it a light layer of tamiya clear orange and a gloss coat. Here it is with the finished engine


Thanks for looking

Some more picture of the painting process

I like the look of highlighted ribs but I think the effect should be subtle. This is my first attempt on doing that kind of stuff. I started with a white primer, I then applied a thin layer of RLM65. Masked the ribs and sprayed a proper layer of the same paint. After that some lighter colour between the ribs and a darker shade over the masked ribs. After unmasking I put down a misty coat of very diluted RLM65. I managed to erase the pictures of the process but here's the result (the colour looks more blue in real life)


The base colour I used for the top is Vallejo Hemp mixed with about 10% white grey


And finally my attempt on doing the streaks. Tested acrylics, enamels and oils on a scrap piece and found that I  liked the enamel paint best (haven't used enamels since I was a child, and my god that smell took me back in time became soo nostalgic [smile]). Stripped the paint at least two times, in some places many more just didn't get the look I was looking for. But I finally settled with this:


Next step is decals and figuring out how to bring out the ribs on the top thinking of masking them and apply a kind of post shading. We'll see

Thanks for looking!

Decals are on! And this is what I did to highlight the ribs:

After the decals and a gloss coat, I masked the ribs and sprayed very very thin mix of black/grey/flat varnish over the ribs followed with a likely very very thin mix of white/grey/flat varnish between the ribs.



After the masks where removed, a flat coat applied and some dry fitting this is how she looks



When working on the underside I managed to rip off a part of the decal [bawl] Never had that happening to me before don't know what went wrong but apparently the decal hadn't set properly.


Don't know how I will fix it but I suspect it will involve some masking [smile]

Thanks for your time

Daniel, sorry to see that happen to the decal.

I love the technique you used for the wood effect. I used to use oils for painting model horses in much the same way, plus you get the hair effect. I was wondering...how long did it take the oils to dry ?

Wonderfully detailed model, nice one.
