I can only second about what Thomas said. You did a great job on this kit. Very good painting and the decaling looks flawless from here. Well done, Terri!

Splendid work, Terri!

Paintjob and decaling turned out awesome, the pit and wells are are most enjoyable to look at. Again - great detailing!

But, do us a favour and show up some pics of this beauty in natural light outdoors...

Thanks guys for the continuing support and following along with the progress .

Well ...stick a fork in it she is finished ! I had to remove the front windscreen for repairs . Had blue paint run on the inside and have no idea how the hell that happened . It was an enjoying build and over all it really isn't a bad kit .

Thomas , I really like the Vallejo Metal coat paints . Really haven't had any troubles with them but I don't like their black primer for it . Just couldn't get it to spray right so I use Tamiya black and will vary with different shades as well . I just don't use black . They dry fast to the touch but need a full 24 hours to fully cure I find when sprayed. I do use them for brush painting , but only on smaller details and they are excellent for this as well .





































Up next ...WNW Fokker E.1 early

Beautiful, Terri!

Are you satisfied with Vallejo's new range of metal colors?
I recently tried out one and get more shine when just brushed instead a A/B. Good drying time and a quite stong surface.

Hi Chris , thanks for the welcome back . Been very well and busy weekend in front of the bench .

This is were I'm at with the build . Metal coat is done using Vallejo Metal coat paint line . There is six different shades and a lot of masking tape . Also was able to spray the blue on the nose as well . I still need to mask off the aeras for the white part of the ID stripes

Very sorry for the late reply back D , been busy of late and start a WW 1 build for a group build on another site . I have made some progress . Landing legs are done with just some detail painting left to do and I made a start on rest of the body working which is almost finished as well . As soon as my batteries are charged will be able to take some pic's for you folks .

Hi Terri.

I haven't checked in on this build for a while (busy with Automodeler shenanigans), you have made some super progress! The detailing in those wheel wells is just awesome. I will be checking in a lot more regularly now, looking forward to the next instalment.

Cheers, D

Terri,
The prop/hub assembly, as well as the wheels and tires, really came out looking great. Both certainly will move your build up a notch or two on the ladder scale.
