Getting ready for some major assembly.

All decals on and ready for a clear coat tomorrow.

French roundels gets oversprayed in silver dope hopefully to just show through.

Thanks Doc. Easy Fix. Both wings or just the top.

 

Cheers

Upper wing decals have almost disappeared.

I've also decided to leave the undersides of the centre section of each wing in white. Looks prettier.

 

Just waiting for the Alclad Dull coat to dry and then on to more assembly. 

 

Happy so far. Going to try some Gaspatch buckles in the rigging. Wish me luck.

Wow, not a fan of World War 1 builds, generally, but I am enjoying this immensely. Please keep the updates coming!

Rigging well underway with Ezi-Line and Gaspatch metal eyelets. Thought it would be easier to do as much as possible before putting the top wing on.

 

The struts were set up place with top wing attached to ensure alignment before starting on the rigging.

Construction completed but still some weathering and general touch-ups to add a bit more character.

 

Its a lovely little model that is well engineered but you still have to think about the order to do things.

I am really pleased with the over-painted French roundels on the top wing. As per the early deliveries to the Italians.

I am also pleased with the appearance of the ribs. Achieved just by adding a heavier coat of paint over them and patchy spray work between them.

The prop is done with a coat of Tamiya Acrylic Dark Yellow with some mottled Tamiya Acrylic Red Brown followed by clear orange coat sprayed.

Still to add some brass paint for fittings.
