With all the gorgeous detail work you have done on the interior perhaps you should cut away one fuselage side to show it off.

Kevin,

thank you for the encouraging words - these WNW kits lend themselves to a nice looking build at every stage.

Ron,

A cut away fuselage is a great idea - I will have to think about it for a future build.

Dave

Stunning woodwork, almost as stunning as Ben Watson's goal. :innocent:

Thanks Guys,

 

Hope to have another update in a few days. And yes, a stunning goal to end a classic FA Cup.

Hi All,

 

It has been a while since my last post. This stems largely for the struggles I have had getting the fuselage together - the WNW Tripe seems to have been engineered like a puzzle box. Regardless, it is now together and I have begun painting. Finish is exclusively Tamiya. Here are a few photos (the stabilizer is just sitting on the fuselage, so it is a bit askew).

Next up: a coat of future and then a series of oil filters and washes to tone down the contrast between the wing fabric and rib tape, as well as impart a brownish hue to the PC10 finish.

 

Everyone keep up the good work,

 

Dave

Very nice work Dave! Despite your troubles with the fuselage, I think it's looking terrific.

Looking great Dave, I just love the wood grain on the struts.

Outstanding project to date my friend. The wood graining is very impressive work. What's you technique?

Highest Regards,

This looks absolutely superb! Looks like I've got some catching up to do on my own Tripe!

Hi All,

 

As always, I appreciate the compliments, they do keep me moving forward.

 

I am in the field for the next month of so (archaeology professor teaching a field class), so there will be few updates until August - although I hope to work a bit on the tripe this evening.

 

Gregory, the wood grain was achieved using one of the RB Productions wood grain stencils. I love mine!

 

Everyone keep up the good work.

 

Dave

I have to get back to my Fee.....
