WingNuts Albatros

Recommended Posts

Hello all LSP members, I am new here. I have been modeling on and off for the past 8 years. My main interest are WWII era aircraft. Got bit by the WWI bug during the build of this Wingnuts Albatros. I see many more in the future for me. I have had most fun building this plane.

 

I am currenlty working on the Albatros from Wingnuts. I use wood decals from uschi van der rosten. Also stuff from Taurus Models, Bob's Buckels, HGW nail decals, and turnbuckles from Gaspatch.  This is my first WWI aircraft so I have no idea if I have done it justice. I am currenlty in the process of rigging and finding it the most fun part about the build. I had to use the stock guns cause I messed up the PE part trying to roll the part and I glued the wrong piece for the engine. Instead of using the one with the coolant pipe that ran through the cylinder I used the one with what looks like external cooling pipes. Oh well, live a learn.

 

Also made seat cushion out of sculpt putty and foil for leather seat back.

I hope these are acceptable here, I have seen many great works on here.

 

And now for some of my past builds

 

I would like to post some more of my builds but I want to make sure this works first.

Welcome aboard from another relative newcomer to this forum.  The Albatros looks superb to me; look forward to seeing more of your work.

Welcome Jon...

 

Great builds. The Albatros looks great in the Uschi decals. You could, by the way, replace the 'solid' kit guns with a pair of turned brass jobbies.. Master do these and you don't have to roll them:).

 

Here's link to Master Barrels page for Spandaus http://master-model.pl/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=garden_flypage.tpl&product_id=181&category_id=2&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=56

 

Not sure who, but someone must do them in the States..

Hi Jon, welcome to LSP, great work! The weathering on the Spitfire looks absolutely authentic. Perhaps you could explain your technique, I could sure use some pointers. Best, Jean
