Re: [WWI] Dornier decals    was: Kits you've built that hardly anyone else hasThanks Steve!
Those lozenge decals always behave oddly at the wing curves. Wonder if generous amount of solvaset would tame them or destroy them.
About the control surfaces... i've already separated them and -back then- considered making them from styrene card, as their trailing edges were a bit thick (a pett peeve of mine). Perhaps, being the control sufaces more angular than originally cast from the kit pieces, the decals would adhere with less trouble. On the other side, yes, cutting off the control surfaces would probably complicate the whole operation... it's a trade...

  Diego, from my notes "I had trouble getting the decal to go around the curves on the wings, and also getting a clean edge at the trailing edges"

  I've just been to look at the model to see if that brought back any more memories. After scraping off the dust I can see that the decal is starting to lift at the trailing edges of the wings, though that might be due to the handling it gets when taken in and out  of the box at model shows. There is also a small tear on the elevator and the decal is lifting there too.
  The ailerons and elevators are marked by only the lightest of scratches, so they hardly show at all. I'm not sure how well the decal would sit down into the  groove if it were cut any deeper. IIRC there was not any spare decal to experiment with.

  Wow! That Dornier D.I is a sweet kit. I cleaned it up and got me the mini datafile to detail its guts. Do you remember how reliable were the decals? Mine are a bit yellowed, but the colours seem to be spot on (in fact, I guess they  look better to be a bit on the yellow side).

    I've just  this week finished an FCM 2C, the late war French super-heavy tank design, a  5MHobby resin kit.

    Does a Fokker V8 made from multiple other kits  count?

    PKZ.2 helicopter,  Roden

    PV2bis, Phoenix vac

    PV7, PV8, Scaleplanes  vac

    Vickers FB19, Scaleplanes vac

    Most esoteric but not a kit,  Bezobrazov triplane
