  1. Sorry that it's been so long since I've posted any updates for my build. Those of you who live in the States understand the significance of April 15th to an accountant (it's income tax day!). Now that things have started to calm down, It's back to the build
  2. Willi - that looks really good. The metal seems to have the same swirls as the real plane.I definitely like it so far. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
  3. No worries. I've really enjoyed watching his build as well. Of course, my favorite part is spending time with him.
  4. Thanks. Hopefully you'll enjoy your build as much as I'm enjoying mine.
  5. Thanks Peter. The wood graining is one of my favorite parts of building WWI models.
  6. The engine looks great, and the propeller looks like it's carved from laminated wood. Keep up the good work
  7. Glad to see someone building this kit. Just one word of warning, though. Watch out for the decals! I built this kit a while back, and while the kit was a joy to build, the decals were a nightmare! They shattered as soon as they hit water. I guess I should have clear-coated them before using them.
  8. Thanks Wolf. I'm going to be doing one of the schemes from WingNuts' Fighting Fokkers Pt 4, the Seven Swabians. That's one of my favorite D.VII schemes, so I couldn't resist when WNW released it on the add-on sheet.
  9. As promised, I was finally able to get some work done on my D.VII. While I was waiting for a replacement Sprue B, I was able to get some other sub-assemblies taken care of. I painted the floor and instrument board, and put them together. I put together the fuel tank and ammo boxes, and got them painted up. I also put the wings together and cleaned up the seams, and started painting some of the engine components. And today, I was able to paint the side frames and engine mounts, so pictures are below.
  10. Sorry I haven't posted any pix yet, but I repacked the sprues wrong and shattered both of the side frames and one of the cabane struts. I just received a replacement sprue in the post today, so I can finally get started on my build. After seeing how well my son's D.VII went together, I'm really excited to begin.
  11. Looks great, Matt! I especially like the way your mist coat toned down the lozenge. Looking forward to seeing what comes next.
  12. This will be my first build posted to this forum. I'm going to be building the beautiful Wingnut Wings D.VII (O.A.W.) that my wonderful son (scvrobeson) bought me for Christmas. He also bought me the Fighting Fokkers part 4 decal set, so I might be using the Sieben Schwabians scheme from that sheet. Pictures to follow soon!
