Hi all,

 

Hot off the bench, very nice kit - but the Meng additions are average - Instructions/ Decals. The wings were bent, but easily reformed with hot water and brute force!

 

All insignia masked and painted.

 

Work in Progress here:

Very nice!  What did you use for rigging?  Got a Stearman sitting here for most of the year scared of rigging it.

 

Just plain old fishing line... I’ve got the ICM Stearman next up.

First I've seen and I suspect it'll be quite a while before I see a better one. Very nicely finished and, thankfully, not a red one :)

Cheers Duncan, shame I won’t see you at SMW this year...

That's what I've used in the past for antenna wire and a little rigging of the Roden Junkers D.1.   Doesn't have to be tight......just a little heat and it tightens up.

First one out of the starting gate! It looks very,very nice, better that I hoped after reading various on line reviews.  Superb paint job, I really must take the plunge and try masked/painted markings.

 

Cheers

So what is the process then Guy? I’m interested to know what make of paint and colour you use. I haven’t tried painting a wooden propellor yet but I imagine you start with a lighter light brown colour then mask it with narrow strips, apply a darker brown. Apply something like burnt umber oil paint and dry brush to get graining and then, when dry, apply something like Tamiya clear orange. Am I anywhere close?

That’s it in a nutshell Simon, I didn’t use a orange top coat tho.. just the oils... it took me about 10 mins, easy really.

Makes it sound very simple - methinks you’ve done this more than once?!!!
