Wow, thank you mates for the kind words!
@Kerry Nice to see another build soon! It's a great kit, but has some pitfalls. The parts are very filigree and light. On my kit there was a annoying misalignment between the mould halves, but this was only bad luck. I have seen better ones of the same kit after that. The spokes are a bit to long, I got some trouble during mount and they are under some strain now.
Which colors do you want to use? I followed the walkaround here on Scalemates, but this one is "only" a replica. There is one in "Deutsche Museum" Munich, seems to be more original, but is painted mostly black: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei
enz_Motorwagen_1.JPG (SM seems to destroy the link with a smily). I like it more colorful
@David See pic6 to 10. I tried to get already a tonal difference in the base color on white primer, so brush painted, and not airbrushed. The oils and clear color have to do the rest of the work
Need wood simulation often on my old biplane models, so I have not done this the first time here.
@Bilbo I used the only clean corner of this mat for the pictures
A big area is a complete mess, once a glass bottle with black! Alclad primer brakes (the internal ball was the winner) during shaking! I had the black primer everywhere around the bench, on the Fokker model, face, T-Shirt, lamps, wall ... and also on this mat.
