GB: Salmson 2A2 USAS.

36 posts in this topic

I plan to join this GB using the WNW USAS Salmson kit and the Aviattic  USAS figures. I will post the Obligatory Box Photos as soon as I can shoot the photos and Learn to post pics on this site :-)

I have worked on the interior. Still touch up to do and I need to down size the photos a bit !  I had to switch to Chrome as an operating system to post photos. The site didn't seem to agree with IE?

The wood is Oils over Tamiya buff. The Dark Horizon blue is a Poly S version of FS 35109.  I applied a wash of burnt sienna and black oils to the cockpit floor. Next up is the rigging of the frames.

This looks beautiful, RAGIII! The Salmson's cockpit seems to be even more a kit within the kit, than the other WnW cockpits I have seen so far. Looking foreward to your next update! Richard

Thanks for the Compliment Richard! The Salmson cockpit is certainly an involved process! One must think about the assembly and rigging sequence( Something I fell a little short on doing). I made up for some mediocre planning by using stretched sprue for a lot of the bracing wires and control cables !

Thanks James, I appreciate you looking in! I agree that the Salmson has been somewhat under represented in builds, though I have seen several that are outstanding. That being said the German 2 seaters, the FEEs and Harry Tate seem to get most of the spotlight with builds!

great start!! I really like the Salmson..

Thanks for the comment! I have finished the control lines and glued the Interior into the right fuselage half. I have placed the upper decking on to show how little is visible once assembled:

Here is the last update for a little while. The fuselage halves are glued together. A little, very little filling needed then on to the Engine!

PS: The upper decking is not glued! Any gaps will disappear when actually installed permanently!
