    Simmo.b got a reaction from rjones726 in Junkers D1 Speed Build FINISHED!!   
    DAY 3
    A small update this time.
    The engine is complete, painted in Alclad and then given a coat of MIG neutral wash to grime it up a bit.
    I wired up the first 2 cylinders on the port side as these will be the only visible cylinders once the engine covers go on.

     

     
    I have also completed the dash.
     

     
    Next time I hope to have the internals together and get the fuselage halves together.
    thanks for looking in.

    on to DAY 2
    I have painted much of the interior, After undercoating with Tamiya rattle can fine surface primer all parts got a solid coat of SMS black followed by Alclad aluminium.
    Hairspray was applied prior to Gunz RLM 02 then the 02 was chipped.
    Details were picked out with tamiya enamel.
    A light wash with Mig neutral wash finished up the parts.

     

     

    Cables added from lead wire

     
    More to follow, thanks for stopping in.

    I have been busy with several large complex builds and realised that time was getting away from me with our local model show fast approaching.
    I searched the stash for a quick project that I could complete in time and challenged myself to actually finish something in time.......Oh look something shiny!!
    Focus Simpson I told myself and ended up choosing what I hope to be a project that fits the bill.
    1, Quality kit that will actually fit together.
    2. Simple air frame.
    3. Cool looking.
    Here is what I went for.

    And here is the particular scheme.

    DAY 1
    Full of enthusiasm I have removed the major sub-assemblies from the trees and cleaned them up in preparation for reaching for the glue.
    As WNW kits have very tight tolerances,  I have taped up the mating surfaces prior to priming and paint.

     

     

     
     

     
    Back soon with day 2 (with luck!!)

    I built this one a while back and have just had the opportunity to attend Eric G's lair where Eric and I spent a day photographing models (well Eric did while I watched!!).
    The kit is the Tamiya E which had the usual mods, removal of raised panels, re-scribing etc.
    I used Aires seats, Eduard interior etch, slime lights, engine internals, Sparrow missiles and wheels, GT cans (not as detailed as Aires or Eduard but the only available that are the correct diameter), Sierra Hotel seamless intakes, Zacto sidewinders, resin cluster bombs (can't remember who by) and Master pitot and AOA probes.
    The kit was painted freehand with MRP paints which are excellent.
    I spent around 12 months to complete her enough of my drivel, lets let the pictures do the talking!
    ENJOY!
