Christoph I hope you are not hurt! Thx 😉
Great Job with the new Cowling and the wood painting 👍
Missed this one.
Thank you Dietmar and David, and for the lines!
I must admit, I already have a bit of a head start 🙂 I wanted to avoid to posting the next shelf queen and so check for early blocking points.
Now I have to wait a bit, because I painted oils on the fuselage yesterday. The oils are hardening now, but before I worked on the struts and undercarriage, so here are the pictures for that.
As I mentioned already the oils are hardening, but I have not shown a picture. In meantime I prepared other details.
It was a lot of work, but I now have a result that no one can buy, you have to do it yourself 🙂

Thank you Guy!
Stay tuned for a posting on Tuesday, which is somehow related to this project!
This is the exclamation of pain of an aerodynamicist I suppose 😉
Agree, very nice. Surly an unusual aircraft.

Ha! Wieder ein Meisterstück in der Pipeline.
Sehe ich das richtig, dass du die Motorhaube aus dem VOLLEN „gedrechselt" hast? Picture / Bildunterschrift 15: so wie ich Dich kenne wirst du wahrscheinlich die Befestigungsstützen an der Haube mit einem Laser anschweißen... 🙂
Exactly Bernhard! Not the first time, as on my Nieuport 17 FLYBOYS Nieuport Ni-17 | Project by bughunter (1:48) and the recent Quadruplane Wight Quadruplane | Project by bughunter (1:48)
Thick wall alu tube would also possible, but harder to chuck in the lathe and I had nothing in my stash. But a piece of 24mm alu 😉
Laser welding would be nice, but that is beyond my reach.
Super work on the cowling. If it's too big, just make a new one (I know, but best to just get it over with). Another option would be to thin the inside of the plastic cowling with rotary tool drum sander, or make a threaded screw holder and do it on the lathe.
weiß gar nicht wie ich Dein neues Projekt verpassen konnte...
Hi, leider ist durch widrige Umstände wenig daran passiert 🙁
But, stay tuned for a posting on Tuesday!

Does it make sense to add "Bronze" to the colors for "Metal" to the Color drop down list?
Background: Eduard makes a series of metal undercarriages in bronze.

That does not mean SM has 100.000 users, because not all IDs are used, but Tim is not far away from world domination (at least in our small model world 😉 ) 👍

It's still a masterpiece...!
Do we get to see photos of the finished piece?
Thank you mates - glad that you like it!
The final pictures are now done and uploaded here:

Thank you James! We live in "Golden Times" with all those nice accessories and decals😉
When I built my first kit in the early seventies extras where paint and glue.
Nice little bird! I like the Halberstadt and You did a great job on Your model. Well done! 👍🏻
Wow that's some colourful plumage on that bird! Fabulous build 👍
Thank you mates! In case you have not seen it yet I recommend to view the build log (see project) too.
Sören, if I'm not wrong I know your name from Modellversium, welcome here!

Thank you mates! As soon as I have new air screw decals I will add them.
A good thing that this project was done in one go, not interrupted by others and not ended up as shelf queen.
@Agustin The base is only used a photo base. My models are in a glass cabinet with light from all sights, so a base would block to much light, so also no figure. Instead of paint figures I'm doing more biplanes😉
Beautiful model 👍
Thank you Rui!
I hope that I can add some air screw decal soon, the one I own was much to big.
All the established "classics" are there - the engine, the propeller, the insane rigging (all getting ever more formidable, when one considers how much of it is model and what all is scratch work...), but this time the hero is definitely the paint-job. Had a look at the box-art & thought - "wait, I can do this better..." ? 🙂 In any case, you did it, great job, checked the build story too and that only makes it more of an achievement 👍
It is always a pleasure for me to read your detailed and wonderful comments 👍 Only a model builder can realize what is really behind such model. Thank you very much, Slavo!
In a last sprint I added again a lot of details. All the prepared parts are now mounted, for example the air screw, but I don't have more pictures.
The Halberstadt CL.II is finished now, so again a project come to the end.
Thanks for watching and commenting! This was a great fun to build this nice aircraft and I hope you had some fun too😉
This was great fun to read and watch.
Thank you Christoph! This was a model with bigger effort due to details, decals and paint job.
Don't miss the album with the final pictures:

Was great fun to see how you build the Plane and the Result 👍 👍
And a big pat on your shoulder for a job exceedingly well done... 👍 🙂
