    Ok Gazzas,
     
    We’re gonna need a lot more info on the beauty of a build! What all did you use to build this DVII? We’re did the markings come from? C’mon, inquiring minds (me in particular) need to know these things!

    Hey everyone,
       It's been a while since I posted a build here.  I'm not good enough to be a slow builder, but there has been a lot of armor and other scale stuff that I've spent time on.   Once in a while, there is a photo that pops up that just know you must do.  Sometimes, I find that other modellers have already beat me to the punch, and I need to find another scheme.  I did Wollf's D.Va by WNW a couple years ago, and although I enjoyed every minute of it, I felt like I was just 'assembling' somebody else' fantastic work once finished.  This has caused me to give away the remainder of the Green Tail Trilogy decals.
     
    Likewise with this Fokker D.VII.  This kit is actually the Fokker D.VII (Alb).  But I have dressed it up as a Fokker D.VII (OAW).   And here is my inspiration photo:

    I've probably gotten quite a few things wrong...  but what else can you do when you have one picture?  Guesswork.  And a little help from some people who know more.  Anyway...  here are my results:

    Kurt,
     
    2 part 5 minute epoxy works really well for me. It gives you lots of time to orient or align parts such as instrument bezels. Excess glue is easy to clean up as well before the glue sets.

    Nice work John,
     
    A word of caution though. Make sure you test fit the exhaust heat shields and exhaust manifolds before going too much further. You may find that your spark plugs may extend out too far and not allow the heat shields and manifolds to mount properly. That was very much the case with my Spitfire's Merlin.
     
    Cheers,

    I finished the wing centre section last night and it's ready to be attached to the fuselage. Another milestone, if you will, on this build. The majority of the work on this section was adding the hydraulic lines within the wheel wells. Although the MLG is in place for the photos it hasn't been glued. I made sure that the MLG assemblies could be removed beforehand as it fits very positively.
     
    I have to admit that I had the good fortune of picking up on some of the detail painting help John Kim received while building his Corsair.

    What a beautiful result Chris!
     
    You’re going to have to take a photo with this one and your other flight demo Hornet together. What a colourful display that would be.
     
    I also have to go on record to say you can’t complete a model in only two pages of a WIP thread. I’m afraid you’re going to have to partially disassemble your model to take more “in progress” photos and spread it over at least two more pages!

    Why do we care about who owns the molds? 
     
    Its like caring who owns the engine castings for you car, Ford or Mitsubishi?
     
    There is what appears to be a nice DR-1 announced by Meng with really lousy box art.  The rest really is irrelevant to the consumer.  
     
    Just my opinion for good or bad.

    So glad to have finished this one..lot more than anticipated,don't believe I'll be doing another,LOL have a few kits on the bench that 
    I want to get to...Just craved something that looked like a Hellcat,getting the Trump wing in and re building the Has. fuselage was the only way.
    Did enjoy it but didn't take it to the wall,But still maintain the Hasegawa is the best "looking" kit in our scale..and have seen some really nice builds strait out of the box over the years.
    Anyhow,thanks for following along and on to the next...perhaps another Yellow wing from the golden age of aviation.haven't decided yet.
    Link to build..Trumpygawa Hellcat x 2 - Works in Progress - Large Scale Planes
    Cheers all.Bill.
