  1. Hello, your build looks stunning so far. Cld you please let me know which clrs. you used for the fuselage and wings (please photo if possible) and decals in case you went for Aviattic decals. THX for info. Cheers for now Kai
  2. Excellent model Angelo. Which AIMS conversion set did you use? I ordered from John already as well. Do you also have a build report at this forum? Why didn't you use brass antennas? I would be afraid to break them while moving the model or touch ist while cleaning it. Thanks for info Best Wishes Kai
  3. Jim it looks like as there is nothing much left of the fuselage. I like it very much if model aircraft are in a very dirty configuration. May be it sometimes destroy the sleek lines of an aircraft but the more details visible the more interesting it gets for the spectator. Its always a shame if I see the detailed and skilled work to outfit the interior of a heavy bomber only to close it in the end. The tiny windows won't give anything away in the end. I do know that modellers build for their owns sake. To get it as precise as possible. But its sad that everything gets lost in the end. Though your skeleton Corsair will give a lot away in the end. Though I am more into WW I 1:32 a/c I will follow your build with great interest. You went pretty far already. Best Wishes and stay save Kai
  4. Perfect Nick, thats the one I want to use for my final Roland DVa kit. I hope you will have a very good .pdf instruction in the end. Will you make masks? Have fun and stay save Best Wishes Kai
  5. Great build. Is the cockpit locker build scratch or does it come with any aftermarket parts? Thanks for info Cheers Kai
  6. Hello John, thanks for a very precise and detailed report. On my list as well since I am in nightfighters. I will use an AIMS decal set. Could you pls let me know where you got your undercarriage from or is it homemade? I have to admit that I didn't follow the whole report. Barracuda is always a must and I have ordered a lot end of last year. I don't know how shipping to Europe would work out at the moment. As well as with Russia. Best Wishes Kai
  7. Hello Gaz, I did buy 3 Encore Fokker FI kits for a reasonable price and won't resell (for much less) nor waste them at all. One was used already for the MvR F1 which is identical to the Voss machine apart from the fact that his cowling is either green or yellow. The Roden plastic is very fragile indeed. I broke 2 times the inner cockpit box and the frame which takes the PART photoetched linen replacement as well. Since I didn't know which parts are best I bought the Eduard, PART and TOM's photoetched items. PART and Eduard is a nice combination. I tried to use also the Aviattic seat but thats far too wide and I squeezed the Eduard pilots map suitcase attached on the right hand side. Better use the PART photoetched seat as you did. Since the Encore kit has some resin parts you don't have to make those from scratch. So I suppose the WNW kit will do much better in many ways. But I will read your built report with great interest and I hope you will place as many photos as possible. Particular of the cockpit and where the parts belong to as well as the wires. I used led cable for the trigger which leads from the control column to the guns. Unfortunately the control grip is rather poor and could be done much better. The compass by the way came from Bo's Flugzeugwerke (Shapeways) who also offers nice Albatros DV 3D printed material. In that case the one from Roden really is worth to go to the litter box. Good luck with your built.
  8. Simply amazing work so far and well explained. Good luck to get it settled. Poor modellers who didn't care so far. LoL I would be pleased to get the same corrections on WNW models by other maniacs.
  9. Hello Andy, any chance to see this interesting model being completet? Forgive my inquiery if family life prevents any time for modelling Anyhow I wish you a Happy New Year
