She's all done and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out - here's the end result of the build, the original thread begins below the photo
Well ADHD got me again, so sue me, this makes # 29 in progress. Have started building Wingnut's Fok. D.VII (OAW) with the goal of having it done no later than April 25th. The large local contest on the 26th has the WWI theme and I plan to take all of my completed wingnuts kits to display.
This one will be the Sieben Schwabben (7 Swabians), available on this wingnuts decal sheet. Lozenge decals will be Aviattic and I can tell you, boy do they look beautiful on the paper.
Progress so far: lots of thin strips of masking tape and preshading of some fuselage parts. Wings are painted now in Tmaiys XF-57 Buff. Ailerons will be a slightly different shade to vary up the finished look of the fabric once the decals are on.
