Kit: dml (1:48)
1:48 DML/Dragon 5901 done in MvR's 425/17 livery. My first kit in over 20+ years. The goal was to tune-up basic modeling skills, and to attempt numerous tips and tricks gained from the wwi list. The build is rather "clean" as I didn't feel confident applying wash to a kit that's already been stripped twice, and took over a year to complete! PE and Digmayer prop from CSM, decals by Tomasz Gronczewski, starboard side upper strut from Shane Weier! Photos by Sanjeev Hirve, edited by Dame Karen.

These are the initial pics showing the Squadron White/Nail polish remover technique of gap filling.

The finished version...and the CATASTROPHE!!! I was actually moving
the aircraft to a safe spot when it snapped off the dowel and crashed to the
floor, hitting tail first. The good
news, clean breaks all round, and in a matter of 15 minutes had all the parts
sanded and re-attached! No muss, no fuss!
