For the moment I'm soo hooked on WW1 birds, and this is my latest build. The kit is OK not as good as the Fokker Dr.1, this one takes a bit more work, but in the end I'm pleased with the result.

The figure is from Eduards RFC personnel box. Used Uschi van der Rosten elastic thread for rigging. Paints are mainly Vallejo but also some Gunze and AK's true metal. Decided to keep it clean so no weathering to speak about. 

Ok here are some pictures, and please give me feedback and ideas how to improve

 













Thanks for looking!

Yey, very nice! Had to check the scale, though it's 1/32! Improvements? More lights to take the picture, this beauty deserves it ;-). Otherwise great work!

Thank you so much Fabian! Regarding the light I didn't notice that the pictures where so dark until I uploaded them. I probably will take new ones if... I get in the right mood [smile]

Thanks Ted! As a matter of fact when I got the hang of the rigging I enjoyed it, kind of meditative.

It looks perfect! The paint job really looks like fabric. Looks like a 1/32 Wingnutwings kit. Love the base and figure. Awesome job.

Thank you Thomas!

The turnbuckles are made of tubing from albion alloys (0,3/0,4mm inner/outer diameter) cut to lengths and 0,1mm copper wire (from a cheap speaker cable) that I made loops of by wrapping it around a 0,3mm drill bit. I glue the loops in pre-drilled holes and then thread the elastic thread thru the tube, in the loop and back thru the tube again. I pull it tight and secure with a drop of thin CA glue.

Don't know if my English is good enough to make any sense, but in a near future I will share some photos of the technique in my albatros wip http://genessis-models.websitetoolbox.com/post/eduard-148-albatros-d-va-profipack-8128709?&trail=15. I first saw this technique in an article from ipms stockholm but there are a lot of info about different rigging techniques if you google ex. turnbuckle 1/48.

Cheers

Hope you make a WIP if you decide to tackle the 1/28 would love to see that coming together!
