You can see a bit of progress on the old girl. I painted the markings on and did more decaling. As my wife said, I decaled the parts that were painted on the real one and I painted what are usually decaled on a model(crosses)! I get things backwards a lot.

I also got the tails on (less elevators) and started rigging them too. I also discovered...after I rigged them...that I should have had another pair of struts on each side of the stabilizer outboard of the inverted V's.

Maybe next time...

Hope you like the progress. Getting close to adding the nacelled now.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
