Amazing job ! May i ask what size of Uschi Van Der Rosten do you use for 1/72 ?
2. April, 10:47
Mike Grant
@Pierre Thanks for the comment. This is an older build and was rigged using fishing line, but now I use the UVDR elasticated thread. For rigging 1/72 biplanes I use the 'Fine' weight.

I can recall building this kit when I was 12 or 13. When I see what you achieved with yours I measure the gap, no, the ocean. Still I enjoyed this first era of kit modelling a lot.
24. September, 12:39
Skywalker
I have the Heller version of this kit sitting on my shelf. If I could get mine to come out half as good as yours I would be super happy. You have done an amazing job on all of your builds.

Hi Mike, would it be possible to upload pictures of this kit? It looks really good! I would like to use it as a reference to my build. I remember that you uploaded it on the Airfix forum for the 24h group build, but the photobucket pics aren't visible anymore. Thank you.

An outstanding model out of such a old kit - congratulation

Mike Grant
Thanks for your comments guys, and to Slavo for resurrecting this older thread :)

@R VG I use Tamiya paints and Gunze Mr Color lacquers (when I can get them). Both are thinned with Gunze self-leveling thinner, but Tamiya's own-brand lacquer thinner also works great with Tamiya paints. It goes on smooth and dries quickly, but I'd recommend a primer first. Tamiya White Fine Surface Primer, decanted from the aerosol can and airbrushed, works really well.
5. April, 12:15
R VG
Thanks everybody for all the valuable information on painting. I'm surely going to try out Tamiya on a future project and see what kind of results I can achieve with it. But I will need a gas mask because I'm asthmatic and strangely, the fumes of White Spirit don't effect me as much as other fumes do. But I will try it out in a well ventilated place.

14. September, 11:46

Fantastic job, hard to believe this is 1/72 scale when looking on the riggings.

I agree with Daniel!

Thanks again guys! @Andy, the kit is a good one. Fit of parts was amazing especially considering its age. Cockpit would have benefited from some more detail, I just replaced the seats with resin ones. Panel lines are raised, so those were re-scribed.
