Here's a view of the underside lozenge camo and the newly sprayed wing markings. No more today; I've had it!

Cheers,

Dan.

Not surprized. It looks immaculate and hopefully will fly as well as it looks. No long grass and calm evening at the moment and the East Coast really took a hammering last week.

White background for the upper wing markings sprayed and a load of 1/8" x 1/16" sanded to streamline shape and grooved for the strut fairings. "N" struts have had a couple of coats of sanding sealer and I've started thinking about the dummy Merc. I need to resist spraying the black for the markings until the white has hardened properly. Curse this impatience...!

Cheers,

Dan.

The sight of an aircraft in the colours of Von Mellor would have struck fear into the hearts of many a hopeful air ace  Wink

Another couple of coats of red on the rear c/s struts and I'm ready to mount the top wing. Might leave that 'til the dummy engine is done and in place as access is easier now. I'm a coward at heart!

Dan.

Cheers Mike!

I'm quite pleased with it, I must say! I was quite surprised at how well the tissue turned out, although the jamming rate was about one sheet in four! I was very pleased with the way the litho plate nose panels came out, given that it was my first attempt and I'm crap with metalwork...

Should have her finished over the weekend, he says laughingly...

Cheers,

Dan.

Dummy engine done and in, upper wing and associated struttery mounted! The engine is hardly super scale, but if I decide to use this for Kit Scale next year, it's what's on the plan. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! Major benefit of a DVII: hardly any rigging to send me mad and blind! A couple of bits on the U/C and tail, and that's yer lot! Yay!!

Cheers,

Dan.

Here's a rare color photo of Lt. Von Mellor in his Eindecker during the early part of the great razor shortage of 1916.

Cheers all! Now onto the Camel or 504 for (Hopefully!) the CO2/Electric class. I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure...

Dan,
I can't stop looking at your camo printing. It looks like painted glass.

Pete, I don't think I'll be entering this for KS; I've gone a bit OTT with stuff not shown on the plan and we all know what that means... Will probably use the G160 powered Andreasson...

Cheers,

Dan.

After sober reflection, well, reflection anyway, I think it looks like being the 504 next. The Camel's reputation for being a vicious git is kind of offputting... See? I can be sensible...!

Look forward to it Dan ... actually started my 504 about ten years ago now  Sad

As I have mentioned, I have the Camel too. Sounds just the level of stupidity for me!
I have had the not so good laser cut parts replaced so I have a full kit again.

As usual, I mess around with some of the details sometimes before the build proper.
Here's the poor 504K kit pilot that has been waiting all that time.

But what about the model Dan?  Grin

Looks beautiful - worthy of a place on any Jagdstaffel.
