Wow, this really looks fantastic!  You could display the engine all on its own...

Nice job.:clap2:WnW have it nice and you too.

Sorry, but the weapons were silver?

Thank you.

Hi!

The WNW instructions give the colour of the gun jacks as Battleship Grey for this aircraft.

But generally speaking, you are right ;-)

 

Cheers,

Markus

Wow, very nice!

 

What did you use for the  overall blue?

 

Thanks!

 

for the blue I mixed Tamiya XF-8 (flat blue) and XF-2 (flat white) at about 1:1

 

Cheers,

Markus

The aircraft is not yet in the RFI section, because I decided to make alittle vignette.

 

I ordered a grass mat from Polak models

Great looking Camel Markus. How did you get the "bullet" fitting so nicely placed in the middle?

Hi!

Thanks for the reminder.

 

here is how I did it:

 

Bullet.png

1. Drill holes (0.5mm) through the bullet.

2. Thread the rigging material through the bullet as shown. It should slide easily through the holes of the bullet.

3. Drill holes through the cabane struts at the joint of the top wing. Glue the rigging at the lower end of the struts.

4. Thread the rigging through the holes in the cabane strut. Pull it tight, until the bullet sits in the (vertical) center. Don't pull it so tight that you can't pull it any further. Just so that the rigging is taut. Glue the rigging at the cabane struts.

5. Push the bullet upward into the final position. Put tiny drops of superglue where the rigging exits the bullet.

 

This works with elastic rigging. With fishing line or similar unelastic material you have to choose another approach.

 

Cheers,

Markus

Thanks Markus, genius.

New to me is your technique of applying the bracing wires without the top wing in place - BRILLIANT and ingenious - makes everything so much more accessible!!!
