Albatros D-V (Eduard 1/48)
Kit: Eduard (1:72)
Enclosed You'll find pictures of a recently completed Albatros DVa model using
Mark Miller 3D rendering for the painting Scheme. It's the 1/72 Eduard
profipack model built almost from the box
Kit: Choroczy Modelbud (1:72)
Enclosed you'll find the Aviatik Berg from Choroczy Modelbud (1/72). I've
slightly modified the late model from the 38 series in order to make the
one of the first model (38-02). The struts were also replaced because the
provided ones were too thick. I've choosen this paintng scheme because I
was reluctant to apply those hexagonal decals...
Kit: Ardpol (1:72)
Enclosed you'll find some photos of a recently (almost ) finished (it lacks
the id plate) Ardpol DFW CV (1/72) . I've used the artwork depicted on the
back cover of the Windsock datafile for the camo scheme and I'm definitly
not sure about the turquoise green shade!!!!
Kit: Roden (1:48)
Kit: Flashback (1:48)
You will find enclosed photos of the Flashback Hansa W29
(1/48) . The kit has been extensively modified and corrected
as Flashback made a lot of confusions between the prototype,
early and late versions. I used the Windsock datafile as a
reference for the modifications. The major problem of that kit is the
shape of the fuselage which lacks about 2 mm in the middle
(vertically). I added evergreen in order to correct the
shape. The bulges around the gunner comparment are also wrong
(prototype version) and must be sculpted with epoxy putty
. The control surfaces corresponding to an early version are scratbuilt
from plastic card using the Windsock plans as a template.
Two little round shaped openings are made behind the front cooler
. The floats are also detailed with Evergreen. The quality
of the resin pieces is very good, but the short
-run injection parts are really very thick and I'd
a lot of work to reduce the thickness of the wings to a correct one!!
The kit was painted with a mixture of Humbrol paints. I used Pegasus navy losange decals for the upper surfaces. The tricky part is the glueing of the floats, because all the arms have a wrong lenght!!! A part from the inaccuracy and fit problems, I really enjoy building this stange bird.
Enclosed you'll find two 1/72 Ardpol resin models : a Hannover C V and a
Halbersdadt CV, both in german markings . The construction of these models
was very simple , only the rigging of the Halberstadt was time consuming
