Albatross DV - 1/32

Recommended Posts

This was a pure pleasure from start to finish. I used the recent MVR boxing for this build and one of the schemes from the kit. It's rigged with ezline without turnbuckles.


The plywood was my favourite part, I sprayed the panels three different acrylic colours, then used thinned oil paints to wiggle the grain on. It's the first ww1 airplane model I've done that I haven't been embarrassed to show the underside.


I'll post more pictures of the figure in the Figure modelling section.

Hello, Ted 


Your DV is brilliant, but the wood ply effect is truly outstanding and looks extremely realistic

Thanks a lot everyone, I was very happy with how the plywood turned out. the oil paints were really forgiving, getting the right amount of thinner involved when I scribbled the grain and then when I cleaned the brush and pushed the paint around a bit took some experimenting but had a long open time, so took some patience but it was easy to fix mistakes.


Between my eyes and motor control I could not do turnbuckles, even if I wanted to. They look cool on the super-detailed builds but not what I consider fun.
