Thanks Alain!
The dials are decals supplied with the kit. I've added a layer of clear canopy glue (pva) to replicate lenses.

WWI rotary engines.  Beasts of mystery to me.  I never have figured out how they get the fuel and sparks in, when the whole engine itself is spinning.

are you pulling our leg? the airplane spins around the stationary engine and centrifugal force slings oil,fuel, and electricity into the rotary engine!

Oh wow this forum is amazing, so much knowledge lol.

I've tried to understand how they work earlier and I think I've got a basic idea about them. Check out vintage aviators homepage lots of information there.

that is a beautiful link the way it is presented. Of course, later came the double rotary engines, The WASP.

I believe that the wasp series of engines aren't rotary but radial.

Ok time for a new update unfortunately I haven't taken any photos of the progress but I got the wings painted.

Under sides just painted with acrylics, but to try to achieve a "roughly painted in the field" look to the top sides I  used a lot of layers with both acrylics, oils and water colour pencils. Tried the hairspray technique but it didn't come out as I wished, so I started all over. I'm not totally satisfied with the result but I'm out of ideas and I think I've reached the good enough point for this build.

So it's time for a new update. I love this build and enjoy every minute of it, but unfortunately this means that I haven't taken much pictures during my sessions so all I have to show are the results from time to time.

Anyhow the fuselage is painted, used the hairspray technique to chip away the green paint and show off the factory painted grey.

Tail

nd other bits and pieces

Next step will be to prepare for rigging, and maybe some minor weathering before final assembly and the some more gentle weathering to tie it all together. And of course I will paint the figure and make a simple base.

Thanks for looking!
