Hi all,
'Presbyopia' aside hahaha the upper wing has now been fitted.
I have to now complete the rigging for the flying, landing and cross brace wires.
After that it'll be the propeller and wheels and that's it, apart from the display base,

1st class Mike! How the pilot was supposed to see anything is beyond me. Beautiful model.


Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.

Hi all,
The Aviatik 'Berg' D.1 is now complete, apart from being mounted on its display base (once the case arrives).
Below are a few rough shots of the model and figure on its intended grass mat ('Polak’ Wild Meadow - 4705).
I'll post up more and better photographs once its mounted in its display case.

Many thanks to everyone for your comments, encouragement and patience during this build.
Now it's back onto the Italian Macchi M.5 seaplane.

Mike

Mike, your work never fails to lift me!! I love following your builds, anticipating the progress and learning your techniques. It's as immersive as a good mystery book.

Well done sir! Keep em coming but please take a break now and then and stretch the legs a little! EVEN TAKE A WOFF FLIGHT NOW AND THEN!!

Mike, That is beautiful work as always. I look forward to following this thread, anticipating the progress of each model, and learning your techniques. This thread is as engaging as a good mystery book! I pop in frequently each day to see what new work you have achieved or are tackling.

You never seem to take a break or burn out. You just keep motoring on to new projects. At this pace you will run out of room for displays in your house (RAF_Louvert is probably willing to help you out if this problem arises yep ).

I recommend you take a break, stretch your legs or fly a WOFF mission once in awhile

Best Regards

Hi Rob,
You're probably right - I have a full flight sim set up as well as one for driving.
Also a Xbox1 set up playing through a 50" monitor.
I also do a bit of Karaoke now and then.
But at the end of the day I get most enjoyment from modelling these early war birds.
Each to his own I guess,

Mike
