LVG C.VI - KP 1/72nd, injected, civil "kabine" conversion

Recommended Posts

A little piece of styrene is glued from behind the opening of the machine gun, so the area can be later filled with Milliput or similar:

I got a tonne of work to do (you know, the "other" work), so this will have to simmer for a little while.

See you soon.

Hello @Moa,

 

it’s a very interesting subject to build - as always from you - the rare planes (without these boring 200+ details) and a straightforward builds 👍 I’m looking with an interest!

 

Cheers! 🙂

The area of the machine gun is filled:

In regards specifically to the shape of the canopy, I trust more the plan from 1919 in Werkehrsflugzeuge der LVG  than the one on the Albatross publication, which seems to me slightly off compared to photos.

Can't do much until I paint some parts, but it's raining copiously, so not now:

I decided to open the door of the cabin and fabricate the interior:

You may remember that I have another engine. The kit's exhaust is close enough but not really like the one seen in photos of the civil version, so that one will be kept with the kit's engine, while I use an Aeroclub one for this model:

It only needs to eliminate the pipe that runs through the hole (present otherwise in some other planes) which I did, and perhaps eventually to trim down a bit the chimney:

The interior starts to be modified. A new firewall is made,the cockpit floor is cut short, a cabin floor is added. Still to go: two bulkheads closing the cabin and its contents:

Lovely work. Is that an Anson in the background ? Civiliamised I presume.

The passenger version had a different, larger, lobular rudder, so the kit's one is separated:

Another will be made according to the 1919 plan.
