You might paint some decal material a brown shade and use tapes cut from that for the bottom surface. Then when you spray the bottoms CDL you will get the rib shadow effect. The decals strips will show up after painting. they just look thin when you apply them. Dont use mono thread, the stuff is hard to stick down.

I wonder, though. MPM has announced the Salmson as well. Now we know which "line" it will be coming out in (since Azur=MPM). I'm extremely excited about the Breguet 14. Good thing I only have one Pegasus! But what to do with all those others... Another thought. Will it be a 14B.2, or will Azur/MPM be smart about it and give you the option of doing both the A.2 *and* B.2? I sure hope so...

Slightly off topic due to the years, but definitely *on* topic due to the aircraft used. Bunches of Nieuports (mainly Nie.24/24bis, but some Nie.17's), some Camel, Strutters, Snipes, DH9's, etc. etc. etc. The coolest schemes are the Nieuports. Lots of personal emblems on the fuselage sides. Two that stick out for me: a Nieuport 11 that kept the IRAS roundels - on *all* flying surfaces - but also incorporating a lot of "skull and crossbones"; the second is a Nieuport 24 with a few bars of extremely well done and highly detailed bars of music on the side, with a unique "globe" on the rudder. All in all an excellent resource if you're interested in the Russian Civil war. Matt Bittner _________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

I don't think it's that simple. MPM only does the moulding work. Azur makes the masters in France. IMHO Azur is to be acclaimed for that, since MPM has severe difficulties in getting their own kits forms and measures to the acceptable level. > I'm extremely excited about the Breguet 14.

Then paint the wings, and apply the tapes as a last step. They'll show up, and will be a little different than the rest of the wing surface. In using thread to simulate stringers or ribs, avoid monofilament and use a fiber thread that will soak up the adhesive. It sticks much better, and when covered in primer and sanded, loses all hint of it's spun origins.

Monnington's is the 1/72 Profipack. The skull and crossbones are from my ALPS as I just didn't have time to order the Americal set. I'm happy with the Alps process but given time for the mail to run its route I'd rather order Dr. Merrill's! The black bird is the 1/48 Eduard with Americal lozenge and crosses. I really enjoyed both but I have to admit the 1/72 was easier and as a result a little more fun! It is a fantastic kit that just falls together. 48th is still my favorite though! :-) Chris -----Original Message----- From: Matt Bittner To: Multiple recipients of list Date: Tuesday, March 27, 2001 10:32 AM Subject: Re: New pics > >Excellent, especially Monnington's!!

I was forced to give it to myself, and won first place in rigged aircraft with my Halberstadt CL.II. Not much choice since it was the only aircraft entered in Rigged/multiwing category. There were no figures ships or armor of WW1 subjects either. This past year our club got involved in the Lafayette Escadrille at the New England Air Museum. Several club members built models for the exibit paid for by the museum. I guess giving a free kit to build is a good way to get people to build biplanes! Needless to say, we had quite a few OT aircraft last year, and this carried over to this year's show. Not as many as I would have hoped, several local OT builders were not present, but from what I read about other shows it appears we have a large number of OT aircraft. Hopefully this will continue.

Your decal strips should show up, however, under your paint... notice how even minute scratches and abraisions do! Applying several coats of paint to your film will thicken it (I use the same technique, even for canopy frames) but be careful... too thick and the edges will 'chip', even when slicing with the sharpest Xacto... again, it's best to experiment first.
