This week have been all about getting the fuselage halves together without any seams, and I think I manage to make it look ok. Also got a good fit on the nacelles. Next step is to align the wings.

I admit 1/72 is just to fiddly for me, I didn't choose the easiest kit but my god it's challenging.. I doubt I will manage to get this one looking half as good as i had in mind, if i manage to finish it at all.

Ok enough with negative thoughts.

The last days I've got the wings together and altered the control surfaces a bit. Today I finally laid down the primer. Hopefully I will have time for some paint sessions this weekend.

The fun thing is that it doesn’t look like 1/72 scale at all, more like the sweet wingnut wings kit. Keep on the great work.

Thanks guys!

Didn't get as much time at the bench this weekend as I hoped, but still managed to get some paint on. Got to love the german wwi camo schemes

Some small touch ups and minor details to paint, then decals. Getting close to the moment when I will find out if all the struts will join up or not.

Thanks guys! Nice to have you onboard Ted!

So it's time for a new update

I got the decals on and like most things with the kit it was a struggle, they broke easily and the carrier was film quite thick but anyway I think they look ok after some work with micro set and sol.

IMG_20190413_150109.jpg  I've built a few WWI planes before and getting the upper and lower wing aligned as well as all struts in the right position is in my opinion often the most challenging part of the build. But this is on another level..it was a nightmare.. 

IMG_20190413_150424.jpg 
The plane has 14 struts + the 12 I've already glued to the fuselage. And after a few hours with more then one moment when I almost threw the hole thing in the bin. Struts broke, some I had to extend and glue that ended up everywhere but where i needed it.   The wings are in place, it's far from perfect, but I'm pleased to come this far.

IMG_20190415_111335.jpg  IMG_20190415_111416.jpg  Next step some minor weathering, start adding details like guns, clear parts etc. and then the rigging.

Thanks for looking!

I

OMG I cannot imagine the task of all of those struts, and its 1/72 on top of that. Makes my hands shake. Fortunately, those last pictures you posted look fine!
Rigging? Not rigging!!! Best wishes.

No no no ... don't throw this beauty in the recycle bin. It would be criminal. HOW my god... would this had been in my hands, I would probably have built a crashed aircraft diorama. More seriously, you inspire me very much and I have an enormous respect for your incredible work. Thank you so much for sharing your pictures and experience.

Near the finishline now,  parts painted and ready for final assemble 

IMG_20190420_215722.jpg

Started the rigging, didn't try to do any turnbuckles as I think it will look wrong in this scale.

IMG_20190420_220007.jpg 
And with the rigging done and every part installed it looks like this

IMG_20190422_131455.jpg 
Will make a simple little base and add some figures, but nothing fancy just to get a sense of scale.

Got this from ebay 
IMG_20190422_125246.jpg 
And choose these figures
