Thnx guys,

had some time today to speed along the pit. Basic colors are on.

Next up: washes, scratches, leather seat.

Something's wrong here. You're working far faster than normal. SLOW DOWN! ;)

 

I know what a great kit this is, and you're doing it more than enough justice.  :respect:

Well, it's not just me. Doug Craner is working on my build too!

Here' a shot of his handy work. Nice and dark. Best color for a Garuda prop.

Thnx Bertl!

 

I really want this to be a speedy build. So I didn't add the HGW photo-etch to the pit. Just added EZ lines, Bob's buckles and the HGW seat belts.

To match the worn outside of this plane, the pit needs heavy weathering too.

Almost ready to close up the fuse.

Are you feeling alright Jeroen? Time to insert that thermo up the ass and see if you're ok?

 

You are working far faster than normal. I'm worried.

 

Apart from that....great stuff as usual ;)

Thnx guys,

Small crappy pic here. Showing this build is not stalled.

Hairspray. Works better for me than the 'branded' kinds.

Things must be going well at this speed you're working? You nailed that worn green paint, and your skin, it's so soft.

And here's the wooden prop. I sanded it down completely. (Sorry Doug!). Sprayed very thinned wood lacquer. Sprayed gloss coat. Added decals. Painted gloss with wide brush and polished. The prop boss is my 3D printed one. Only needs a dark wash.

And the resin cowling fitted to the fuse. Not glued yet. Engine goes in first!

29 days till finish line! It may seem almost finished but knowing myself I'm sure I'll be cutting it close!

Well I am! Getting close to decal-time now.

 

Resin cowl and resin engine fitted. Before washes:

I seriously have to use that green on my next Eindecker. Lovely looking job. It's a pity you don't see much of the pit when the cowls are in place.

Thnx Jim,

 

Started decal work! Micro Sol takes it's time, so I take my Wine. How's that for a poem?
