Hi !

 

It's my last finished model. I started it about 2 years and a half ago, stopped and restarted it several times. I even stripped the whole fuselage and repainted it as i was not satisfied of my first try of the sponge camo (yes i had to redo the whole wood grain finish of the fuselage....).

But finally it's done, and i'm happy with it.

 

It's an Albatros built Albatros D.Va of the Seefrontstaffel 1, flight by Lothar Weiland

 

It's built mostly OOB except the very nice HGW Daimler radiator, Master brass Spandau barrels and sleaves, and a few details from Taurus in the engine (valves and rockers, sparkplugs...) and a few scratch built stuff. 

The rigging was made with EZ line and Gaspatch turnbuckles, with also a few microtubes cut to lenght.

Painting the laminated wood with a realistic way was the last challenge of the build and took me about a whole day. But i think it was worth it, and i will reuse this technique for sure.

 

It built smoothly as the fit is excellent, with no bad surprise. There is only one thing i always find scary with WNW kits : the undercariage is very soft, even a bit elastic. Recently i built a Nieuport 11 from Special Hobby, and the undercarriage is very stiff and looks strong, while the WNW undercarriage struts of my WNW models seems to be made of jello when even the slightest movement hit the model. Anyway, even soft and flexible, it seems to carry the weight of the model without any problem, so i think it's ok.

 

Here is the link to the WIP thread : http://forum.largesc...showtopic=51336

 

Thanks for looking !

 

Nicolas

Thanks a lot for the kind words guys !

 

Alain, just go for it ! The "string bag" part is definitely not the most difficult. In fact, it's way easier than it seems to be. At the beginning, i was afraid of the rigging, too, but now it's almost what i like the most. Also because it means the end is near. :)

 

 

 

Dave : from you, it's really a great compliment !

Glad to see this one finished, Nicolas, and what a beauty it is! Just amazing. Your prop looks like it's actually made from wood. May I publish it on the website?

Looks great!!! You did a fantastic job on that Albatros. I have to say that I am constantly amazed at the quality of workmanship produced by people that build these Wing Nut Wings kits.
