  1. Started a new project while I'm waiting on new exhausts for Lou IV. Found this kit in my closet and I am already loving it as 1. It only has a few pieces 2. It is a cool looking airplane 3. It can be done in VERY bright colors 4. No rigging! You can really go to town on the engine - yet 95% of it is completely hidden so focusing on the top end. The obligatory box photo. I was really torn between this plane, on the cover, and a green and purple one. Going with this one. But this one was tempting... There is so much detail in the engine, pipes and exhaust and all, but it is all covered up by the cowling. Too bad! BUT the carbs do not match the diagram at all. They are flat with injection holes, rather than dome-shaped. I wonder if there was a problem with the plastic during the molding process? I looked over and over in case the carbs were molded separately. Nope. There is also a fair amount of flash that needs to be trimmed away: I seem to remember in my previous (few) Roden builds there was some flash issues with those kits as well. Here are the results of my five color paint session: White Primer, Silver, Wood, Gun Metal, Copper. All Vallejo Model Air colors. I tend to paint over the primer in the same paint session when I can. And a bit later painted the Red nose so I didn't have to mask around that engine, but also in the same session found a light gray for the underwing color (sorry, no pictures of that just yet). Vallejo Red #003, Vallejo White primer which I tend not to lay down too heavy. Lighting is off a bit, the primer is actually a dull white So this should be a fairly quick build. Chris
  2. 14 schemes total - 11 O-2A (10 USAF grey and black, 1 VNAF grey) & 3 O-2B (USAF camo-ed). Included O-2B options in the hopes Roden will release an O-2B boxing or someone will produce a B conversion, or for those looking to scratchbuild or even those not particularly concerned with A vs B differences. Enough data/stencil markings are provided for at least two complete aircraft - potentially more if you go with the overall black options or O-2B since neither wore many stencils. Stencils are for the Vietnam period, no kit decals are needed. Also included is bonus "THE FAC" decals to replace the kit version (the black schemes in this release don't use it.) Estimated release in Feb. Price $19.50. www.AOAdecals.com
  3. I waited for the Roden 1/32 O-1 Bird Dog with much anticipation. When it finally arrived, I wasn't disappointed: a simple, no-nonsense, accurate, well-moulded kit albeit a little scarce in interior details. This latter point didn't bother me a bit because I like to detail cockpits and interiors. IMO the one thing the kit lacks is an M-16/ AR-15 assault rifle which is closely associated with the Bird Dog and the FAC missions it was renowned for in the Vietnam conflict. The O-1 is a little bare without it. The problem is that M-16's can be easily found in armor modelling in 1/35 but none in 1/32. So what to do? Build one from scratch. This is how I did it. The reference is a profile view taken from the internet et reduced to 1/32 scale. The material: plasticard and brass wire. The pictures say it all. In situ Hope you like it. Cheers, Quang
  4. Today is the 100th anniversary of the death of Ltn. Werner Voss. Not a case for celebration – more a reason for remembrance of this remarkable young pilot and of so many others from all sides who perished in the War to End All Wars. Richard Andrews of Aviattic has commissioned a set of decals from us and a superb figure of Voss from Nino Pizzichemi, these will be available from Aviattic as a comprehensive set including streaked camouflage decals for the Fokker F.I, designed by Richard and Juanita Franzi, artwork from Dave Douglass, an illustrated booklet and a replica Sanke Postcard of Voss. As part of our collaboration, Sabine and I are delighted to announce that Pheon are also offering Voss' marking decals (for his Albatros D.III and Fokker F.I) and the resin figure and these decals will be available for pre-order on the Pheon website later today, either as a combination (marking decals and resin figure) for £30.00 or the decals may be purchased separately for £12.50 and the figure for £20.00. All plus shipping, of course. The figure will be accompanied by our etched German pilot accessories – 1/32nd Pour le Merite (Blue Max) medal x 2, Iron Cross x 2 pilot's badge x 2 plus two styles of authentic German goggles. Whilst the figure does not carry the medals, the goggles are useful added detail , either to be added to his hand carrying his helmet or around his neck. The Medals include tiny decals and can be used on other German figures, of course. The decals include all markings for Voss' Fokker F.I (Dr.I pre-production machine) including all national markings, a full suite of werke nr. decals, Fokker tail logo, Idflieg and Fokker construction plates for the cowling and compass variation table for the amunition box. The decals for the Albatros D.III also include Albatros and Idflieg construction plates and placards for the Mercedes D.IIIa engine. Both sets include newly-drawn Aviatik propeller logos - without a gold background. We would expect to be able to ship the figures and decals within the next 2 weeks or so. More Fokker Dr.I news, we are also working with Richard to release an etched undertray with separate access hatch and fastenings and detailed firewall to accompany an Aviattic resin cowling specifically for the Fokker FI. Pheon and Aviattic will also be releasing etched details for the Dr.I, (including underside tray, hatch and fastenings, firewall and brackets, as well as throttle quadrant and other internal details) to accompany the excellent Aviattic resin cowling, which is already available direct from them. As is their beautiful Fokker pattern resin pilot's seat. Furthermore, Pheon are preparing the most comprehensive decal selection ever for the Fokker Dr.I. These markings will extend over seven decal sets covering at least 97 different schemes - not too bad considering that only 320 were built! Initially these sets will be available in 32nd scale, but consideration will be given to releasing 72nd and 48th scale versions if there is sufficient demand. It is our joint aim for Aviattic and Pheon to provide the WWI modeller with the greatest opportunity to use the Roden kit as the basis for a comprehensive Dr.I model selection, able to sit alongside a WNW model collection without blushing!
  5. Hi all, This is my recently finished Fokker Dr.I in the colours of August Raben's bird. The decals are Eagle Editions and the paint is MRP. Some use of Aviattic rib tape and fabric decals, as well as some Uschi wood decal. Guns are MASTER, and the prop is from a WNW Fokker D.VII kit. Used ammo chutes are also from the WNW Fokker D.VII kit. For this build, I used the Roden F.I kit, but used the parts for the production Triplane version. As well as some of the Encore PE extras, I also used stuff from the PART PE set, such as the ammo bins etc. Quite a lot of thinning of the upper cockpit deck and modification to comfortably use the new ammo bins. Watch out for this build in the next issue of Military Illustrated Modeller, available at all good newsagents and the online store!
  6. Built this for one of our club members who supplied the pilot figure you see in the pictures. My first Roden kit, and only my fourth WWI kit. The idea was to build a dirty, worn aircraft, so I've added some mud and some battle damage and overall wear. This is the Roden kit, out of the box with Eagle Cal markings for the most part, Vallejo Model Air acrylics over the White primer. The green/olive was done with acrylic water colors, olive green and titanium white and a tiny spot of burnt umber. The engine was done with the Vallejo metallic acrylics and black and brown washes. Propeller is vallejo wood applied over a coarse scratched propeller to simulate the wood grain, followed by a wash of burnt umber that was allowed to sit for a minute, then wiped off with dry paper towel. That left just a little bit of the dark color in the grooves from the coarse sanding. My approximation of some battle damage: Fun build and always like to show a dirty and worn aircraft. I need to get much better about doing the rigging, EZ line in this case but I need to find a way to attach it in a much neater fashion. Thanks! Chris
  7. Under 5 minutes; rigging takes up almost half the time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wa-Y8VMICwU
