Here is my first completed WW1 airplane & my first Wingnut Wings build. WNW Fokker DVII (Alb) in the markings of Richard Kraut of Jasta 63. Built to represent the aircraft before surrender to the Allies with it's original top wing & tail. I used Aviattic decals with 'brown tint' for the lozenge with the remainder of the markings are the kit decals. Added HGW seat belts, Taurus Models spark plugs, used wire for the spark plug leads & other engine pipes, wire & stretched sprue for cockpit details & the rigging. Haven't attempted turnbuckles yet, will add that detail on my next WNW build. Have 2 errors, I forgot to apply the 'datum' decals on the forward fuselage sides prior to the clear flat overcoat and I did not scratch the radiator support that is visible when the engine cowlings are removed. Hope you enjoy the photos. Any comments are welcome.

Beautifully done Sir! It's an amazing kit but a little fiddly to put together. The Aviattic decals are brilliant and make  a big difference to the look of the finished model. Absolutely love it!  :thumbsup:

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Well, I reckon that looks terrific! Those Aviattic lozenge decals look superb. May I publish it on the website?

The lozenge camo is fantastic! What I keep looking at the most is how you captured the laminate layers of the prop, WOW! Care to share your technique?

Thanks for the kind comments.

For the prop, I painted a base coat of light wood enamel, then used a dark brown Prisma Color pencil to draw on the laminates. Clear gloss coat to finish. That was my 2nd attempt, first practice turned out o.k.

Very nice one! :yahoo:

 

As long as you don't try to step into the cockpit the forgotten radiator struts are not an issue :wicked:
