  1. RAF BE2C 1/32 Lukgraph The journey is over and I have to admit I have enjoyed it thoroughly. The BE2 is an extremely interesting subject and the CDL , woodgrain and metal is something I simply love. I find the kit to be the best by Lukgraph so far. No issues and and an extremely enjoyable to build. Painted with AK RC, AK 3GEN, Gunze, Tamiya and other. Weathering with AK pencils and oils. The propeller is hand-carved and as always with help of Michał Jakś (laser cut outline) and the hub is by Proper Plane.
  2. RAF BE2C 1/32 Lukgraph WiP 5 I've added some rigging and the fuselage details. The kit comes toghether like a charm so far. The next step will be adding the wings.
  3. RAF BE2C 1/32 Lukgraph WiP 4 The fuselage halves received the undercarriage legs and the stabiliser fin. I've also painted the wings trying to replicate the tranluscency effect. I will certainly weather them with both crayons and oil paints. More to come soon. All roundels are the kit's decals.
  4. The fuselage halves are glued together and painted. Now it's time to work on some minor details and paint the wings. The model comes together pretty nicely. The decals (roundels) are super-easy to work with. They work like a charm.
  5. Fokker De Spin 1/32 scratch + 3D print + Proper Plane propeller I really wanted to have this in my display case. It was a time-consuming but pretty rewarding experience. The model is finished for some time but I've received the beautiful custom-made propeller by Alexey Belov from Proper Plane and decided to take some decent pictures. Thanks a lot, Przemek Żurek for your patience with printing the parts and Alexey for the propeller. Also a huge thanks to Szymon Grzywocz for his remarks and the figure and finally Łukasz Sznajder for his 3D designing tips.
  6. I've attached the wings and braced them with the rigging. I've used the fishing thread for the rigidity.
  7. The cockpit is almost ready. Time to glue the fuselage halves together. I must say that I was trully amazed by the kit's seatbelts. The metal is really thin and very easy to shape. I've also painted the 3D-printed engine.
  8. The 3D printed parts need some refining before painting but nothing some primer and delicate sanding could cope with.
  9. Fokker De Spin 1/32 scratch + 3D print I've decided quite a while ago to build one of the most interesting pioneer aircraft (IMHO) - the Spider. It consists of rigging, rigging and even more rigging so it sounds like fun. I've started with the "fuselage". At the beginning I had designed the 3D parts like skids and the frame but after I printed them it turned out they are just too fragile, so the brass was used instead. The radiators and the seat are 3D printed. This is what I've managed to do. The spoke wheels have been made using the 3D-printed rim and wheels with wire spokes and the hub made of brass. They look slightly crude, especially when compared to the Steven Robson's spokes which are stellar but still I'm quite happy that I've learnt something new. I've designed the Argus engine and other bits like tail fin and the petrol tank in Blender and they were printed by my mate Przemek Żurek.
  10. I guess it comes as no surprise that I've started with the cockpit. I simply love the wicker seats which come with the kit I think they look superb. Everything falls in its place without any problems so far.
  11. Lloyd C.V Lukgraph 1/32 The model has been really pleasant to build. The woodgrain is Lukgraph's decals. I've added some minor details like the binoculars or the anemometer. The propeller has been laser-cut by my friend Michał Jakś and carved by me. Overall I'm quite happy with the result. I hope to see more Austro-Hungarian subjects coming from Lukgraph.

  13. Guess what I'm going to build now!!! So I'm lucky enough to be able to wrap my dirty fingers around the new BE2C from LUKGRAPH. Here are a couple of thoughts and photos. The BE2C is one of those iconic aircraft of the Great War which has not been represented on a 1/32 scale yet. Thie workhorse of the RFC is finally here. The kit is in my opinion the best model by Lukgraph - so far. Well-detailed, with crisply casted resin parts and with a lot of painting schemes, it's going to be a true joy to build. There are both 3D-printed and resin parts, a PE fret, a huge decal sheet and a superb instructions booklet. The 3D printed engine, bomb racks and wicker seats are simply gorgeous! Well done Łukasz!
