I recently picked up the Wingnut Wings re-release of their Pfalz D.IIIa (my favorite WW1 airplane). This is my second WNW ann 1/32 kit, the first being a Roland C.II I built some months ago.
I'll be making a Pfalz D.IIIa from Jasta 46. I've yet to decide between one with black and white bands or Rudolf Matthaei's Pfalz.
Here is a skin I made of the 3-band skin for IL2: Flying Circus:
and Matthaei's pfalz, which had black and white chevrons as a personal marking:
My plan is to do as much of the internal piping and wiring as possible. I'll be leaving off all of the covers to show off as much detail as possible. To this end I'll be adding spark plugs, rocker arms and valve spring from Taurus models, LMG08s and turnbuckles from Gaspatch and white metal undercarriage parts from Scale Aircraft conversions. I've also got the decals from WNW's previous pfalz kit so I have various balkenkreuzes and serials to choose from.
I started the build a week or two ago, so here is my progress so far.
I put in lots of 0.3 and 0.5mm holes to accomodate for pipes and wire I'll be adding to the engine and interior.
elevator, throttle and trigger cables added to the control stick:
Interior frame and floor put together with fuel lines and grease pipe installed.
The oil filter I made from a spare bit of landing gear.
Air pump, fuel filter and various other pipes installed
Interior weathering done by oil washes and splattering.
