Umlaufmotor Posted November 24, 2013 Share Posted November 24, 2013 Here are some pictures of my creation of a seat cushion from the Pfalz D.IIIa Please keep in mind, that pilots which were equipped with a parachute ( late 1918) did not need a seat cushion. So, pillows out of the plane when you built a diorama when a Pilot with parachute standing near the plane. We need except a sharp pliers, a good pair of tweezers, nail file and sandpaper, various drills, a good hobby knife and liquid plastic cement a Dremel or something similar to a Dremel. In each WNW-Box is already a seat cushion - well - at least the material from which the seat cushion will to be created. First, two matching pieces are cut out of the WNW-seat cushion material. These two parts are glued together with plastic cement. After the glue has dried, the contour of the seat is marked on the plastic. Cut with a sharp forceps along the marking Now, with a file and sandpaper, the contour of the seat cushion is modeled. The cushion may quietly look a little crumpled.With the Dremel, the pad is slightly dented. Marked the buttons of the seat cushion, then drilled (0.4 mm). With the hobby knife pleats are engraved into the pillow. Always in star formation around the buttons.The holes of the buttons are recessed with the Dremel bit. A thin plastic rod represent the buttons The pillow is treated on the edges with rough sandpaper. We want an old, crumpled and wrinkled pillow. The seam on the pillow is made with an extremely thin plastic rod (drawn over a candle flame), glued with liquid plastic cement. Finally, the seat cushion is polished with fine steel wool - done. And here is the seat cushion from the WNW albatros D.V Servus Bertl 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
