BerndM Posted August 23, 2022 Share Posted August 23, 2022 Hello ! Something finished from my bench, right from the shelf of doom. Its Eduards Siemens Schuckert D.III kit ( the new tool ) as a Weekend Edition kit, started some three years ago before i lost the interest in WWI aviation. It is completely out of the box including the lozenge decals and the rip tapes for the wings. The only addition were turn buckles from Gaspatch and two cross hairs for the Spandau machine guns stolen from other kits pe sets. The seat belts are simply made from tape. It was build just to see if these massive decal work which took a whole week and the rigging is fun. After all it was but needs some more perfection. Markings are for a Jasta 15 aircraft, Chery-les-Pouily, July 1918 No weathering. I have tried to show a factory fresh aircraft. A resin engine would have been the better solution. It has still not the flare signal holder on the starboard side and i have no idea about the aileron control. Maybe something to add at some time. Eduards "Flugzeugstoff" known as lozenge looks in their SSW D.III Weekend kit much better as in the Profi Pack Edition but its still regarded as inaccurate. Application is very good. Turnbuckles are from Gaspatch. The rigging material is Ez Line. Fiddly ! A picture taken during final assembly. The propeller is still primed in a dark brown shade. Photos were taken on a piece of cardboard in the garden. Thanks for watching Bernd 27 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
