Watching with pleasure, of course! 🙂
I will take a seat….
I'm in too
The fans are gathering.....👍.
I grab a seat too...
Welcome to the show mates!
But I have to admit that there won't be as many scratch parts as in the last project.
New pictures. Need to wait now for drying, then mask again and paint the outer parts of the wing late PC10 (this is a special British green mixture).
Off we go again.

Just outstanding sir, is all I can say.
Your photography compliments your build very well.
Excellent work!!! Beim Bild 18 habe ich in den EAE-Mode umgeschaltet ob du uns nicht ein Original Bild untergeschoben hast 🙂. (EAE = enhanced argus eyes 🙂
Very nice to read your comments here 👍 Thx mates!
Bernhard, you are right! Wie ich unter Bild 18 geschrieben habe: Original (18) versus Fälschung (19, und in Farbe 20) 😉 Es war gar nicht so leicht, die gleiche Perspektive, Winkel und Kameraposition auf dem Foto zu erreichen. Man bräuchte wohl eine ähnliche Brennweite bzw "Field of view" wie die Originalkamera.

So this little Aviatik fighter is finished and this build report ends now. Thank you for accompanying us on this journey! I was very pleased that many of the visitors had the time to comment.
As soon as the final shots are taken, I will add them to a new album.
The pleasure was all ours! Thank you so much for the tour of your factory!
Kudos for your effort!
Here, Here, Peter and Villiers. It has been inspiring and very pleasureable 🙂

A most deserved award in Ried! "Three out of three" is as impressive as your models are! Congratulations!
Thank you mates!
Special thanks to Roland for persuading me to participate as an exhibitor after all! Will you be successful next year in demanding a separate category for my models? I think I will be there on 15./16 October 2022 👍
Well deserved award! Congrat's! It was great to see your models "live" at the show in Ried. Looking forward to see you there next year.
Congratulations !! Nice to have more than us scalenuts word on your work! lol

And the next batch new outdoor pics, have fun!
fantastic! great pilot view again 🙂
The outdoor lighting brings out the details on your wonderful builds Frank 👍
I nearly missed this beauty.
The main difference between yours and the original, is that yours looks better. 😉
Thank you mates! Nice to see you after a long time gorby 👍
I'm quite happy to finally get an answer to that question. Without any pun: it bugged me!😉
Also here some new outdoor pictures - it was only a bit to hot for the rigging.
Beautiful !! 👍 👍
It looks fantastic in the sunlight. If it was in black and white you could pass it off as a period photo of the real aircraft.
Remember the build (or better to say "aircraft development" in this case... 🙂 ) - fine stuff it was then and now - especially like the translucent wings with the visible structure inside - looks even better in the exterior shots - now it ultimately looks better than the museum-experience 👍

Absolutely! And you certainly accomplished that! 🙂
One day, I will be good enough to attempt a biplane. Until then, I have Bughunter to follow! And I love the colour pics!
I second Peter all the way 👍
The color pic look like mood-shots from a movie 👍
Nice to see you all in the thread here 👍 Thank you very much, also for the likes!

Thank you mates! Slavo, for cloth parts, like the HGW seat belts, sharp scissors are enough😉
Added a picture of the photo setup used for final pictures of a model.
my silhouette cameo is my secret weapon. Once I realized I could use it to score styrene everything changed.
Zach - what settings do you use on your Silhouette for styrene scoring?
it depends on the thickness, I have trouble with .040 and usually need to do multiple passes but .030 and .020 I can usually use a thick vinyl setting.

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!
I this the actual ongoing build?
Watching, preventively supporting jaw with one arm... 😉
Just wondering, what kind of lathe machine do you use, and do you recommend it? Seems like the only sane option is some mini-lathe, not the typical industrial lathe machine.
Slavo, I put this project on hold a while ago and started a new one and finished it last week:
Kondor D.2 | Project by bughunter (1:48)
Treehugger, it is a Paulimot. In principle it is a Chinese one, with a new drive and electronic control. It was the smallest one (need only 220V), in comparison with a Proxxon for the same price it has more options. I bought it some years ago and it is still available, only the price is higher now:
The company is also located in Bavaria so I was able to drive there with my car and pick it up (package is 82kg!).
Is is not only the lathe, you need also some tools around it.
At that time I build RC models, so I opted for a bigger machine. May be I would go now with a watchmaker lathe, but on the other hand a bigger machine is helpful for things like the cowlings. The problem is with smaller ones that you can't use bigger drills for example (length is to short to hold the drill). A lathe is not a toy and a powerful and dangerous tool, that must be clear. And I never had a education about it, so it need a while to learn and I'm still learning with every produced bit.
Thank you mates - glad that you like it!
The final pictures are now done and uploaded here:
Finished Wight Quadruplane | Album by bughunter (1:48)
Incredible work as usual.Big thumbs up.
I "dropped out" mid build-here - it´s just so satisfying to see the world going on where one left it... sheer excellence here, everything as expected (which in this case is the highest degree of praise 😉 )
Although it needs to be said this one has more than the usual deal of awesomness, the cowling being a technological marvel and the mini-pump assembly (working propeller?! 😮 ) just outside of any scale. There is always something special in your builds, but this one brigns a christmas-load of tricks & details 👍
Thank you Slavo for digging this out of the SM stack, and for your nice comment! A complete resin kit was a new experience.
May be I will add outdoor pics. Today I mounted the bottom of an old analog camera to my airfield base for a new photo setup with two tripods, let's see how it works.
