Hey gang!

Late posting of the WnW DFW i built right after the Fokker DVII as i just couldnt find enough time to take proper photos...on the other hand i also have finished an AMC DH2 which will be the next RFI as i managed to find time to take a photo session of both of them in one go...

 

Model factoid:

 

Wingnut wings DFW C.V late

HGW superset

Gaspatch for the armament

EZ line

Bob's buckles and eyelets throughout

Aviattic Dark linen and light linen for the CDL surfaces and cockpit

Uschi VDR plywood decals for the insides of the cockpit fuselage

Windsock Datafile #53 and the internet for references and inspiration

 

 

The kit goes together really well and i didn't find any trouble there. A little more filler needed than i am used to in my previous wingnut wings builds specially at the bottom of the fuselage where you have the bottom horizontal part of the fuselage that joins the two fuselage halves. For some reason i have found that on this particular kit the tolerances were a bit more relaxed and i didn't need to scrape the paint off of the mating surfaces specially on the cockpit unit. Woodwork is a mix of oils, RB templates and colouring pencils. I have modified some parts to better resemble the actual aircraft like the radio wire that hangs below the aircraft. The engine is beautifully rendered and you do have the cylinders without the molded on pushrods, although wnw doesn't have this written down anywhere on the instructions. In came those parts, to which i added brass 0.5mm tubing that i had left in burnishing liquid. The spark plugs are nicely molded and i did not need to modify those. I added the wiring harnesses and the wiring harness cover, that one scratchbuilt from sheet styrene. I also added the two control rods for the carburators. The engine was painted gloss grey and then i used UVDR's fantastic buffing metallic pigments. Weathering on the engine was done with oils from AK and W&N. 

The paint used were tamiya acrylics. For the streaking i used AK worn effects chipping fluid on top of Aviattic's lovely dark linen. I was worried at first how the chipping would work on top of the decals but it actually worked out fine. Rigging was done with EZline and with the lovely help of Bob's buckles for all the rigging hardware. Weathering overall was made with oils, oil filters and sparingly using florymodels clay washes!

I hope you like it!

now off to post the photos and then post the AMC DH2 ready for inspection photos...

 

As always, stay safe and happy modeling!

Karim

Hey Danny
No all painted. I first did the whole prepaint then aviattic linen then clear coated. On top i used ak worn effects fluid for the chipping and then painted the green stripes and chipped them. Then matt coated when all dry and weathered
Thanks for leaving a word my friend!

You have made that into a wonderfully war-weary and tired looking aeroplane !
