    The sight of the canon is indeed intentionally left in brass color. I think it is a nice detail and brakes de color of the gun.

    After fitting the last things I'm finished. I've learned a lot this build and did some things for the first time. I'm very happy with the result and wonder why there are so little WIP's of this beauty.
     
    My next build is totally different  and will not be a plane in 1:32. I want to build a BR 52 locomotive with 2 gondola's and in the gondola's a V1 and a launch ramp.

    Just one stupid question... 
    I have spotted this in the RFI section..
    Is the sight on the cannon left in "brass color " intentionally?

    After 5 months and the help of Paypal I finally got the extra sprue from Trumpeter so I could finish this one. I only made this dirty with the Flory models weathering wash wich I applied with the airbrush. After drying I filled the airbrush with water and cleaned up the model. I only let it drip from the model en didn't wipe it aof except for the bottom.
    The pictures can be found in the RFI section. Thanks all for watching and commenting.

    As said, the torpedo had to be replaced. First I had to make new proppellorblades. I found a nice picture on the web, and made a dxf file of it. I loaded this in the software of the millingmachine and then i had this little propellorblad.
     

     
    They where very small so i made quite a few off them. I made some smaller and shorter grooves in the torpedo and assembled everything. Eventually I got this.
     

     

     
     
    Much better then the first one if I may say so.
     
    Then I assembled the landinggear to the plane and the motor. Here are some pics.
     

     

     

     

     
    Now i can give it a wash and a final coat of matt. 
     
    This week I got a reply from Trumpeter on my mail for a replacementsprue. They have the replacementsprue I need and with shipping it will cost me 10 USD. I think this is quite a lot of money but better expensive then not available. I decided to order the sprue and now I will see how long I have to wait. I will use the brackets for the torpedo so i hope the delivery is fast

    Hi all,
    The engine cowl and after market ‘CMK Master Models’ Le Rhöne 9J (110 hp) has been fitted, which is the correct engine for the 'Swallow'.
    The next step is to create cowl plates that were fitted to replace the 'Camel' strap type fasteners at the top of the cowl.
    The bottom strap fasteners were retained.
    Then final fit the two 'Vickers' guns and feed chutes.

    I've started my first WNW model - the Sopwith Pup.  So far, the parts have fit together properly and there's been no drama.
     

     
    The kit has options for 80 hp Gnome or 100 hp Gnome versions.  I built both engines and decided to go with one of the 80 hp versions - 'Baby Mine' as on the boxart.  Both engines had noticeable gaps between the front and back halves of the cylinders.  I probably should have sanded both halves flat before gluing them together, but the cowling hides most of the engine anyway.
     
    80 hp Gnome engine.  The photos have over emphasized the colors.  They actually look much more subdued and realistic.

     
    I have scratchbuilt the IP, thinking I could do better than the kit part.  Yea, I know the airspeed indicator is upside down.  Funny how you don't notice those things until its too late.

    Thanks for looking.  Comments are welcome.

    ................................and it does!!   
     

     
     
     
     
     
    It looks like a giant mess ATM, but all those individual wires will be corralled, and glued down inside the airframe, so will be mush less chaotic once done.
     

     
     
     
     
     
    You can see here the cockpit and IP lights. Each of the side console lights will be put into a fiber optic strand and run to point at each side console panel so the light isnt so bright or harsh. The IP micro-LED will be put into a tube containing many fiber optic strands, each run to an individual instrument once I have that part finalized. I will leave the cockpit tub out until I have the IPs and cockpit lighting fully sorted, as it will be much easier to set up and handle out of the airframe.  
     



     

     
     
     
     
     
    Here is a small vid of the lighting in action with the model room lights off, so its easier to actually see the action. The lower fuselage beacon is in the small rectangular piece with a hole in it beside the fuselage, as it would have been hard or impossible to see on the bottom during the test:
     
     
     
     
    I have some work things to do tonight, but will be back on the 104 this weekend.

    Before I started working with the salt, I first sprayed many small things. I think this is really better than decals and will try to use this as much as possible in the future.
    After the paint was dry I applied a layer of matte varnish. I chose matte varnish because the model needs to be made wet before the salt is applied. Matte varnish holds water slightly better than gloss varnish. For the light haze I used kitchen salt. 
     

     
    I did some dilution in the airbrush and also a few drops of white. I sprayed that over the blue color. It is difficult to properly estimate how much you should spray, but I tried something. When this is dry (quite fast) the salt can be brushed off. I did this with a stiff brush but it took some effort. When I grabbed a soft brush and wet it, it went a lot better.
     

     

     
    The red band to indicate where the propeller line is is a bit too much to the rear. However, I will not change this.
    Then the model could be made wet again and put in the salt again. For the second time I used coarse salt, which was made slightly finer in the mortar.
     

     
    Now I put strongly diluted smoke in the airbrush and I could spray again. On the bottom I think the smoke is sprayed too strongly but if I put the model on the float and I look at it then I am very happy. It has actually become exactly as I had imagined.
