Thanks Kevin, WWI projects are sure a different animal.

Indeed they are. I have a few to get to "one of these days", but at the moment I have no idea when that'll actually be.

Thanks, replicating wood, rigging, and the fragile nature of these models are certainly the challenge of most of these machines.

 

Great fun though!

Outstanding work so far especially the wood grain finish.

 

The wood grain was great fun but took a few tries to get it right. Most of us know the light brown color is applied and then oil paint is streaked across to replicate grain.

After a few failed attempts I discovered that if you applied the oil paint "dry" and then followed up with a moist brush you could get some neat effect such as seen on the floor board, gauge panel, and engine bearers.

The large mineral streak in this pic was achieved by this technique applied to only half of the upper panel resulting in the dark line you see...very effective.
