sandbagger Posted February 22 Share Posted February 22 Hi all, As the build of the Halberstadt Cl.II is coming to a close, I've started to prepare for the next model. This hopefully will be Hannover Cl.II, Serial No.690/18 of FEA 8 (Fliegerersatz Abteilung 8), based at Graudenz (now Grudziadz in Poland) in late 1918. I've changed my original scheme to this one as the decals I applied did not go well. Basically the lozenge decal I used were clear backed, which was not the problem. The problem was adding the rib and edging tapes to the wings etc. The cut clear backed lozenge decal, when applied, showed the underlying decal, making the rib tapes way to dark and muted. I did try white backed lozenge decal, but they were way too bright. Basically I should have used the white backed lozenge decal to start with. So, rather than spend more buying replacement decal, I decided to change the scheme to the above. Also, I have a commission build of the CSM Bristol Scout waiting to be started, so time is pressing, Mike 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
