I would like to express my humble thanks to Steven Perry who let me use his Windsock
Datafile for more than a year. Without getting mad at me! Shane Weier is also
worth mentioning for his help. This is a conversion from an old Fuji D.III kit.
I kept the fuselage and made the rest from scratch. I added interior details made
of bits and pieces after my own head. The spandaus came from a friends spare boxes.
The floats are made of balsa wood as are the beeching dollys. The whole thing
is rigged with stretched sprue. I painted the model by hand, even the crosses.
Although satisfied with the result, I think the fuselage became too dark. I
can live with that.
I took some photos of my Pfaltz DIII some time ago. IT is an Eduard non
profipack kit in 1/48 scale. Built OOB. I used a kind of homemade mix of
Humbrol flat black and white and added a tiny bit of aluminum paint. No 56
I believe. After it had dried I rubbed the wingsurfaces with some SNJ
powder. Decals and interior details came with the kit.
It isnt rigged in the photos and has not been so in real life either. I had
it rigged some time ago but a smaller misshap with the landing gear lead to
the deletion of all rigging. IŽll get around to it some day.
