Very nice work! 👍
Thank you guys! It was a quick project to try the combination of wood grain decals and oil paints to simulate wood. It turned out quite good, but I would change a few things in the future.
I have a second kit in my stash, I will build that one as the basic version, without the wooden nacelle.
Wonderful! Impressive result!
I agree with Alex, Björn and Roland. 👍👍👍
well done 👍
Excellent work, beautiful plywood/fabric material depiction, the wings look awesome - as does the whole thing 👍
Thank you guys! It was a very interesting project. I made wooden planes before (20 years or so), but the result was really bad. This one is getting close to what I wanted to have.

Very nice bird !
Would you try a dark/black background ?
Thank you Olivier!
I tried different backgrounds, but I still have issues with olive drab or similar colors (on black backgrounds the dark planes planes are always overexposed). I have an older DSLR, and it's dynamic range is not the best. I really struggle to find the proper lighting and camera settings for those dark colored models.
I will continue experimenting, but I will not have time in the near future.
Just my two cents, try spot light measuring on the plane. It should help with the dark background.
Yes, that was so far the best, but still not good. I am not sure what the root cause is. The backgrounds in my cheap lightbox are quite glossy, one of the next thing to try is to replace them with matt surfaces.
The photographs are very OK the way they are. I just thought they would be even better with the darker background.
