1/48 Albatros, Lt Werner Voss, June 1917

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Fresh off the butchers block is this old SMER Albatros, its an 'interesting' kit, thought i'd use it to practice wood grain using oils that i've never used before, came out ok, in fact the kit scrubbed up ok with a bit of work.

Did a bit of re-scribing, lots of sanding and a bit of scratch building, all good fun!

So here it is:

1/48 SMER Albatros, Lt Werner Voss, June 1917

cheers

Simon

PS: dont suppose anyone has some spare decals for this kit as I damaged one of the heats?

Given the kit you had to work with, that's a real testament to your skills. Excellent little model!

That looks superb, lovely work.

These older aircraft seem to be much more of a challenge to look good, but this reproduction of such an iconic machine has really achieved it.

Cheers Pat!

Yes, a fellow BM'er supplied the decal so now all done!

Funnily enough just returned from a week in the Somme, mix of beach & a few days in the battlefield, breathtaking place, sad and inspiring all in one!

Hope alls well with you!

cheers

Simon
