I'm still amazed how good the painted pattern looks on the cowling. I wouldn't have thought about using for this effect buffable metalizer . Brilliant!

Love the weathering!
Superb build!

Thanks for the kind words!

I tried metallic pigments then acrylic silver, i didnt like it. stripped it off. I then tried acrylic silver with the squiggles done with an HB pencil, didnt like the results either so i restripped it. Finished off by trying silver and the squiggles in chrome silver buffable and it turned out nice... just needed patience and some trying to get it done...

Thanks for leaving a word!

Fantastic build! I also checked out your blog - great stuff - can I ask who makes the jig you were using during the build?

Incredible.  I never really had much interest in these WWI aircraft until I see you guys with these amazing builds.  You have really brought this build to life with the painting and weathering effects...

Beautiful. As usual.

 

Must be useful practice for the upcoming Taube, a wing warping monoplane with metallic cowling & loads of rigging?

 

Albeit the Taube looks like it'll have more of everything!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a word too, knowing how things are.

I hope all is well my friend!

You should be in line for Modeler of the Year in my book. Every one of your builds is a show-stopper.

Neil hey !

Thanks for taking the time to leave a word and for checking out the blog!

The jig i use is from a company called Vertigo Miniatures. Its the 1/32 1/24 scale jig for biplanes. I would highly recommend it and it has been very useful in alot of my builds, for aligning and for the rigging and all!

Thanks again for leaving a word!

Karim

Bryan thanks!

I never had any real interest in ww1 either until i built my first kit of the era and the spark was there. The more i read and learnt about the time period the more i wanted to build. Wingnut wings also spoils us with the quality of kits they come out with and it makes the whole process just this much more enjoyable. Now you dont have to worry about things aligning correctly etc, you can focus on bringing the love to the kit and turning the mental image you have into a reality!

Thanks for taking the time to leave such a kind comment!
