Spanjaard very nice job!
11. September at 06:52:50
Holger Kranich indeed a very nice job! Didnt you like the kit decals?
11. September at 06:59:53
David Andrs I used decals for the wood effect on fuselage. But in general, I try to avoid decals as much as I can...
11. September at 11:29:05
Alec K Wow!! Excellent work . Was the computer layout for custom stencil?

David Andrs Thanks everybody and glad you like this piece of flying furniture (-:

Alec K: I make the spraying stencils from the kit decals. I scan them, load them into inkscape, trace the lines with curves and cut them on a vinyl cutter.

Alec K Absolutely gorgeous build! I am stealing your wire length "calculator" idea

Stephan Ryll Very nice build

David Andrs Alec K: When I was cutting the first wire for the third time I was like - I need something better for this, because there is an awful lot of wires ;) The only weakness is how to keep the damn thing in place while you glue the turnbuckles. The tape kind of works. May be masking fluid would work much better... need to try it next time...
10. March at 00:26:40
Alec K I am assuming the turnbuckles are not actually eyelet-in-eyelet (that would be too easy...), and the ends must be cut to mate with the anchor eyelet? Hence the need to position them at appropriate angle?
10. March at 13:29:36
David Andrs They are Type A ([img1]?c=2) . It is one rigid piece. Then EZLine is threaded through the eyelet. So, yeah, you need to get the angle right. It is a tradeoff between building 30 of them vs. using a prefabricated part. Each has its own pluses and minuses.
10. March at 18:05:00
Alec K Got it - thanks for the info

David Andrs I think it just got lost in the big influx of new albums every day. I finally finished this a few days ago. Need to take some better pictures with better light.
9. March at 23:41:58
David Andrs Alec K: just different color on pic 21. I was experimenting with how to paint these in different ways. I think masking the tapes is probably easier than masking the "valleys".

Richmond "Need to take some better pictures with better light" - You could make a cheap light box Youtube Video

10. March at 00:20:50
David Andrs Richmond: Thanks for the tip. I actually went through about 3 different setups. Each one had different level of complexity - if you will. I think the current one I am using does not take much space, I can set it up and tear down quite quickly and it produces nice results, see DFW C.V (Gretel Lo) | Album by andrsd (1:32) and Avia S-199 (LS-15): Finished | Album by andrsd (1:32) for an example.
10. March at 00:31:29
Richmond Thanks for the link - I have a WNW in my stash - just putting off construction until I get my skills up. I am sure I will be going over your old logs.
10. March at 00:33:07
David Andrs I was also hesitant to start a WNW kit first. But, frankly, they are such nice kits that you do not need any special skills to build them. At least, I do not think I have any :)

David Andrs Added some pics from the painting session...
26. November 2018 at 03:07:14
Alec K Looking great David. Looks like adapting the resin took some work :D Nice progress
18. December 2018 at 17:25:36
David Andrs Yeah the resin kit was made for the Revel kit. I was like "how much different could this be?". Quite a bit :) But I am glad I figured out how to fit it to the Trumpeter kit.I was also surprised how much I enjoyed it. May be, because I have quite strong motivation with this...
18. December 2018 at 17:30:29
Alec K I always wondered how resin parts go with kits other than the ones they were designed for (never tried it). I am glad to see you getting into resin, brass etc . Personally, I enjoy the building phase of modeling the most.
18. December 2018 at 17:46:05
David Andrs For comparison I am building another Avia S-199 from the Revell kit :) The resin parts fit much better. Not great, but better :)

I am into painting the most. But, I want to improve my building skills - mostly inspired by the work of some people here.
19. December 2018 at 13:29:08
Alec K Which S-199 will to be?
19. December 2018 at 21:33:51
David Andrs IF-01. the one from KP boxart from 70's. you remember that one, right? :)
20. December 2018 at 02:09:43
Alec K Oh yeah, CLASSIC! looking forward to it
22. December 2018 at 13:11:03
Thomas Bischoff just seen the finished result - gorgeous work done here!
