Craigyboy Posted November 30, 2013 Share Posted November 30, 2013 Hello, sorry for the delay in getting anything uploaded but I only get one day a week to work on the model (running my pub takes up the other 6!) I originally posted in Say Hello: http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/1421-hi-guys/ and promised some progress so here it is. As I said, I'm starting modelling again after a 20 year layoff so your comments on how it's looking would be appreciated. I hadn't realised how much the old eyes go in artificial light when you hit 50. Cockpit is well under way and should be finished in next couple of sessions. I've added Airscale Luftwaffe harness and some of their generic decals on the right hand sidewall. Also made an oxygen bottle from a bit of sprue and run blue wire as an oxygen pipe. At the rear I've wound some copper wire around the drum of the retractable antenna for a bit of realism and replaced the plastic spent cartridge bag with one made of masking tape Few bits of wire between the transmitters and receivers add a bit of interest. I've also been working on the engine and that's well on too. I painted it a dark gray base coat then added a wash of metallic gunmetal gray to give a slight metallic shimmer. Some chipping (stilllearning on that one) and some glossy oil runs and dry brushing and it looks like this though not complete yet. Hopefully will have the engine and cockpit ready to go in the fuselage in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime any critisisms or comments will be greatly appreciated and absorbed.
