  1. Guys, you are truly very kind and it keeps my level of motivation high. I keep on pushing with the build. Masking prior to spraying the upper wing surfaces: Upper surfaces done, only varnish and oil left to be applied. Horizontal stabiliser and elevators (something got sticked to one of them and has been already removed )
  2. Many thanks for your kind words! Some painting and masking done - as the base for the CDL I`ve used the good old XF-57. I`ve sprayed Red Brown at the area of the wings which was reinforced with plank wood and the ribs. The ribs were masked after the whole wing was covered with XF 57 again in order to simulate some depth. The effect I wanted to achieve is presented in the picture below: Masking: Next, I`ve sprayed the lightened up base paint at the ribs and between them in order to make the shading effect more vivid. Now it`s time for varnish and some artistic oils. I`ve also added the stitching using the 0,06 fishing line.
  3. Thanks for your kind words!!! Another update just to show you that I`m not that lazy... The nacelle and the floats are prepared for the paint job. I`ve glued the wings and fixed the metal plates. I`ve also added the PE bits to the engine nacelles and covered them with a primer. Other bigger parts are also prepared for painting.
  4. Thanks for your feedback! Some cockpit details: The seatbelts are scratch built. I`ve used Green Stuff to make the pilot`s seat more comfy I`ve also replaced the compass. The one OOB is fine but I just like to make some details on my own. I`ve decided to install the wireless - whether Hydroavions had them or not is unclear but I think it`s a great detail. Also, my logic makes me believe that they had them installed.
  5. Dornier Do 18-D

    I must admit, you`re doing a tremendous job here! I had the kit but never had guts to start it. It is a true joy to watch this how this masterpiece unfolds.
  6. You`ve got my attention - the interwar French birds are one of the most aesthetically pleasing aircraft of all time
  7. One of my all time favourite flying boats! I didn`t make to be in the front row but still I want more.
  8. Thanks! jrl, yes I use mostly Gunze and Tamiya paints.
  9. Thanks! I`ve started painting the wood grain bits of the nacelle. I`ve used XF55 as a base and artistic oils varnished with Clear Orange. I think I`ll try to work some more on these parts to get a more refined result. I`ve also glued the Le Rhône 9C engines. I`ve just added the push-rods and the wires. After seeing the pics I think they require some touch ups. I`ve tested the Chrome Silver for the first time
  10. Let`s say I`m slightly more keen on rigging than others
  11. Thanks for the invitation! I`ll be more than happy to build it as a part of this great GB. I`ve decided to start the Caudron. The kit contains extra sprues with the floats and beeching trolleys along with trestles. They are great cause IMHO the floatplane looks a little bit peculiar without them on the ground.

  13. Great looking Dr.I mate! It really is a striking scheme you`ve chosen. I wish mine was half as good as yours. The Axial logo on the propeller is upside down - the Eduard`s instruction is wrong there.
