Looking simply fantastic - paint and masking is perfectly done.

Keep ‘em comin

Thank you, Peter!  If you don;t mind, I'll use your quote to segue into another update.

 

Hello friends, although I keep preparing to start weathering with the oils, I find more and more stuff I need to get done first.  Hopefully this update will put in the no-more-excuses/delays position.

 

Whilst I'd attached the guns last weekend, there were still things to take care of...  most of which were partially weathered, like the exhaust pipe.P1013607.thumb.JPG.e6f75896e83d016c8eba833e4aaba279.JPG

You can see from this front shot that it's a crowded area under the A-frame.

The ear radiators are a feature unique to the type but were quickly replaced by the Teeves und Braun wing radiator.

Atop the engine is a strange triangular contraption that is also common to the Roland C.II that I can only guess is the filler cap and coolant reserve/steam expansion area.

Finally the tail skid.

I think that puts me out-of-parts.  Soon, it will join my small Jasta.

Happy modelling!

And what a nice addition this is. All the detail work combined with the interesting and not often seen paint scheme, make her a real stunner.

Cheers Rob

Thank you, Rob!  The monochrome fuselage is demanding some better effort than a pin wash.  I'm hoping I can find the right colors in my head to get it right.
