    Beautifully done Brian!
     
    Definitely WnWs quality. So many fine details in the mouldings which is so typical of their stuff.
     
    Not much left now eh? 

    Cheers,

    Thanks Matt, and yes, just looking to finish this one up with dignity at this point. The trip we are taking in about a week and a half has me pressing to fix mechanical issues with our tow vehicle, on top of seasonal prep work to get our trailer ready for the off-road season ahead. 
     
    All of this has kept me busy on all of my days off, but I did manage to sneak at least a few nights work in on the little tripe. Nearly the entire thing is completed save adding the lower aileron braces, landing gear rigging, prop and aileron control lines as well as final assembly. I figure about 1 more good nights session and it should be finished.
     
    I was trying to get the little tripe finished up while enjoying some British telly with the wife but my 19 lber and my 26lber decided to pull a Ying & Yang right where I was trying to build on the coffee table, so had to pack up and head back to the main bench (nothing but terrestrial radio down there atm)
     

     
     
     
     
    After heading back to the bench, I got the rudder added as well as the OOB machine guns that I had built previously. After annealing, and painting, these really didnt turn out too bad.
    The lower wing spare and lower panel were attached and all the weathering that Im going to do to the model is now done. I would have to have supposed that Voss's machine lived a fairly short life and wouldnt have had anything too severe, so I didnt want to go overboard. Besides, heavy weathering or damage didnt match any photos I have of Voss's kite.
    Anywho on with the pics:
     
    Engine complete and ready to be attached to that tiny fuselage:
     

     
     
    (crappily aligned pic sorry bout that)
     

     
     
     
     
    Engine is setting in place atm:
     

     
     
     
     
    Painting, let alone weathering prior to assembly is super foreign to me, and WWI stuff is always an exercise to some degree, out of my comfort zone.
     

     

     

     
     

     

     
     
     
     
    I really do like the look of the shiny oil and leak weathering over the flat fabric. The contrast always to me gives more realism
     

     
     
     
     
    My cell camera is old now, and starting to do funny things. I guess the angels approve of the fit of the top wing as much as I do.....just looks like some odd "heavenly"
    type light treatment.
     

     
     
     
     
    That could also be used to describe the actual fit of the entire kit honestly. People are going to have to give me some definitive proof that this isn't WnW engineering with fit like this.
    All 3 wings fit basically perfectly in place, and perfectly in relation to each other. The top wing is just set on yet still fits and aligns perfectly with the fuselage and the other two wings:
     

     

     
     
     
     
    Even with all the silvering (which is much less evident with the whole model together, as it really takes attention to the overall look) I must admit that it still turned out to be a very attractive, if all be it not super well done model.
     

     

     
     
     
     
     
    This is the last installment prior to finishing this little guy up. It was fun! Id HIGHLY recommend this kit to anyone who wants a tripe, and is willing to put in about 20 min worth of hot water correcting. 
     
    Thanks lads, and will hopefully have this one finished off long before we leave on our trip on the 29th of this month. 
     
    Cheers!

    I’m not sure I would have had the fortitude to fix up the markings on the fuselage sides that many times myself, Mike, but it looks amazing!

    I thought it was time to remind you all following along that I am still alive and still (amazingly) working on this Brit Toom.
     
    Where did we finish up...oh yeah, intake vents...how could I forget that!  Well the good news is that they are pretty much done, still a little more (believe it or not) refining on these but 90% done now.
     

     

     
    I foolishly thought I could glue them in, but after studying some panel lines, things didnt add up. Please see this photo  Damien Burke took, actually I love this photo as it really shows a lot of details.

     
    I will explain in more detail once completed and my wash in there, but the panel lines are all slightly different on these FG.1/FGR.2 intakes.  Not a lot, but enough to bug me.
     
    I re-did the 2 rectangular panels on the front half (and yes I made one a little too long and have filled with CA and rescribed to shorten it, also in the process of replacing and finishing off the rivet lines )Tamiya only have put about 1/2 of them in, so I am just finishing them off and this will match the rest of my airframe details too.
     
    Looking at this pic enlarged identified why they looked different.
     
    The 2 access panels are slightly different and have an extra section.  These are correct for US ones but it doesn't seem so for the Brit ones...of course  , close but different.  This took a lot of figuring the correct positioning, as remember these intakes are slightly shorter and rivet line spacing is slightly different.  Anyway I am pretty sure i have it sorted and you will see it better once I get them panel line washed. Essentially moving about some of the vertical panel lines forward and adding new ones.
     

     

     
    I am not going to get too carried away on the top section as all this is going to change shape soon
     
    Oh one more thing I must say is that a few members here have help with some info and in particular 3D scans of the fuselage overlayed on drawings and known measurements.  I am now convinced I know why the intake vents on the side are too close to the radome opening, it appears the fwd fuse is about 3mm too short, and by adding about 2mm to the font bulkhead I correct the length issue and the Air Con vents end up in the correct place.  Also explaining why Flightpath shortened their resin nose replacement.  I am not going to worry about any other slight mm differences as I can live with them after correcting the nose. But more on that closer to the time.
     
    Thanks for checking in and the delay on an update
     
    Cheers Anthony

    EXCEPTIONAL  & EXQUISITE  shots of the Amazing build Pete.
     
    I think to build (or model ) a true scale model relevant  aspects of the original subject must be accurately modeled such as material ,properties and maintains an accurate relationship with its original subject.  And YOU NAILED IT!!

     
    You, Captain FLEISCHMANN  have demonstrated the behavior  { figures } and property { The Pavehawk } of the original  object.
     
     
      Your model's interaction with the outside world is reliably related to the original object's interaction with the real world. Your model represent the physical appearance of an object in miniature,and appears to be SO exacting and detailed.
    Damn its INCREDIBLY STUNNING !!
    Thank you for an AMAZING  build to follow.

    I shall miss it when it ends... 

    Look forward to the Book

    Hey Wolf , perfection not my thing , I'm happy to just get a decent shelf sitter (12 to 15 incher).
    Everything on the side of this thing references off of the cross. It always lines up with a panel
    line (vertically) then the height so with a 2 digit ID number, which has to be the same height
    as the cross, I had a limited space. Long story short, things just didn't line up right. It's just one
    of those things I know will bug me unless I fix it.  But it's all fun ... right ?
