Hi,

 

I would like to join with the following package received several days ago from WnW.

HGW seat belts and PE details along with Master Model Spandau machine guns will be added during E-day model show in September ;)

 

I am looking forward! This going to be fun :)

I just can't resist and start to play with some parts.

This isn't the real start because I still have to get some more goodies.

So I've touch up an engine by adding some oil pipe and replace the water cooling on cylinders.

Taurus Models details will also be added later on when I get it... :)

I am bit late with my build partially due to doing new things ... :)

 

After finishing the engine I am focused on the interior.

Beside the normal stuff like interior lozenge, painting the frame, seat etc,.I've also think about the ammo box.

I decided to have it empty so I have to make it from scratch.

 

Finally I've turned this:

Alexandr where did you get the photo-etched sheet? Which brand?

Hi Pardelhas,

 

It's my own design :). My private brand - MaDSaM ;)

The sheet pictured here is the first prototype which was a bit too big. The finished ammo case is from the second prototype which is also not 100% correct but usable. I am considering production of a very limited run of the final version with all the needed corrections implemented.

The current design is intended solely for OAW machines but coud be easily modified for the other versions just by different ammo chute "horns".

Would you like me to let you know when it's finished? ;)

Wow, Alexandr! That ammunition box is superb.

 

I sincerely hope that you decide to run this as an ongoing product :)

Thanks guys for your interest. I decided to give it a chance so the set for WNW Fokker D.VII Empty Ammo Box is currently being etched :)

I´ve enhanced the design a bit and now it ´s possible to make any one of three variants of the box - high, medium or low.

I should have the first production batch available in 2 -3 weeks. So in case you are still interested or you know somebody who could be interested, please let me know via PM.

 

I know this GB is over and I am sorry not to finish my ´Schwabeń´ in time but I did not give up ....

 

Some progress from the last weekend interior assembly session. My empty ammo box is used so you can see the result.

The alignment is not perfect on my assembly but that´s because of faulty piece of hardware somewhere between my chair and the workbench :)

Thanks to this GB for inspiration.

I will continue the build in In progress theme. See you there soon ;)
