Junkers D.1 from WNW

Recommended Posts

I remember this aircraft as a war trophy at the national aviation museum in Ottawa,  Canada  back in the late 1970's. And when wingnuts wings released it I built the kit. I loved it, the kit went together so well.

Good evening good sirs,

 

I made some progress on my Junkers ...

Dry fitting of subassemblies. All markings are airbrushed.

Camouflage was sprayed using card board templates to achieve a ragged color seperation.

Working on the wheels. Added mud and dirt made of pigments and fixer.

Test of my new weathering technique: Base colors are a mix of browns from Zero Paint RAL 8017 and Tamiya XF-64. In the picture this color is the dark shade. Then a coat of hairspray was applied for 30 sec. Rinse with water. Chemical reaction leads the light shade seen below. This can be mechanically removed with wooden chisels, stiff brushes etc.

Now it´s time to order a pizza :-)

Hi all,

a little achievement, at least for me ... :-)

Proof of concept: I sprayed the complete model with a mix of thinners and hairspray adjusted to work with the lacquers used on the model.

Dark areas are still wet of rinsing the model under the shower. This gives an idea of the original shades.
This is the first time use on a model after a few years of empiric research – and failures!
Erhh.. happy little accidents! (Love you, Bob Ross!)

The dried model shows the bleached finish to advantage.
Now the mechanical part of the physicochemical weathering can begin :-)

Have a nice modeling evening! Bernd.

Good evening,

 

I started to do some weathering on the left engine cowling.. still some WIP. Needs a wash, some oil spots and leaks, dirt and grime ...

Yes I agree, every model needs a shower and a brisk massage after.
