Off to a promising project! Resins painted and ready to assemble. Having to fit it in the fuselage, scares the hell out of me! I've reduced the sides and... we'll see. Hopefully the project won't end up in the recycle bin...

This was a present from my son, so everything else had to be left behind...
I was planning to have it ready earlier for new year greetings, but since i came some days short, i give you a teaser.
Happy new year to all!
Although Eduard's model comes with some impressive painting options and decals, i thought that Red Baron's tri-plane is a must have...
Not having built a WWI plane before, i have to say i fell in love with those beautiful little creatures and i got a couple more.
I hope you like it!
well done, I like light weathering
Thank you Stefan! It was the pride of German Air Force, I guess it was always well preserved.

First time working P.E. and I'm feeling exhausted!!!
While working I could'nt stop thinking, "What am I doing ??? Why am I trying to put together pieces that I could inhale if I'm not carefull enough? What for ???"
Is'nt it a bit too much to try to put so much detail in such a scale ?
I could'nt event make a decent photo out of it...
Ah, but it looks so nice once installed!
it looks really fantastic Giannis, and even if hard to see later, you will be able to see it, i can promise you that. And you will know it is there!
and those that can appreciate it, will also be able to see it.
Thank's guys! I just wanted some opinions on this one...
Not sure if there was a point...
Spanjaard I'll let you know once it's finished
good luck and happy modelling (enjoy, that is what counts, forget about what anybody will think about it)
Well done! I had to smile reading your introductory remark on tiny PE-parts 🙂
I may say that I hope there is life in this lovely project, I am planing to do this kit for myself..... and therefore would like to follow!
Thank's Roland! That's exactly how i felt back then... But once you get involved there is no going back with P.E.s. Absolutely essential for an accurate model, and are acctually fun to work with!
I will definitely finish this model, i'm still working on it from time to time.

You gotta love cockpits! Kits inside a kit. Finishing one gives you the same pleasure as the entire kit, and motivates you to put some more effort to the rest of it.
All of them? This one in particular doesn't!
It actually is a bloody nightmare! Plastics don't fit, P.E.s don't fit, the floor piece was crooked in a way that nothing around it fitted, and i had to cut it...
The instruction sheet, is simply... ridiculus, with pieces floating in the air and attaching themselves simultaneously alltogether to form a cockpit that, magically pulled underneeth from a hole, fits into the fuselage!
In reality, dry fitting reveals that... nothing fits! P.E.s snapping out of position due to excessive preassure, pieces need sanding, some others..."rearrangement", and I guess I'll be needing a lot of putty and some styrene pieces to fill in the gaps left underneeth.
I've been longing to make an Eduard model, heard so many nice comments but now, not being an experienced modeller, I really wonder if I can pull this off. Let's see how that one goes...
At last the fuselage is closed, cockpit sealed with a layer of matt varnish, ready for primer.
There wasn't a single joint that didn't need sanding, lots and lots of glue to retain the contour of the plane, cover the huge "stairs" that the joint pieces created, opposite pieces with different thickness and so on.
The model is a mess, i had to use virtually every tool in my inventory to manage it.
Saw your comment on my Hurricane build and found this build in your projects. I've been wanting to build a Yak-1b for a long time and just got the Zvezda kit, so I'm following your build with interest! Really nice progress! 👍
Thank's Bjorn! Hope Svezda's kit is much better than Eduard's ...

Awesome looking build and a cool subject. 👍
the weathering is so complete...right down to mud splats....it looks like it actually exists...super job
Thanks guys! Much appreciated
