Hi Rob,
Yes it is but it'll tone down.
Similar to the SPAD XIII,

Hi all,
I've applied the decals to the wing struts and the rudder from the ‘SuperScale’ WW1 Nieuport 28C-1 (MS320243) set.
The pre-moulded lined wrappings around the struts were way to thick.
I sanded them away and replaced them with white 1.5 mm wide white stripes from the ‘Xtradecal’ parallel stripes white (XPS2) set.
Also applied are the wing decals, which are ‘Aviattic’ aged varnish CDL (ATT32094) linen effect decal undersides and Linen Weave Effect (ATT32236) on top surfaces.

Hi all,
Apart from the propeller, all of the decals have now been applied.
Undersides using ‘Aviattic’ aged varnish CDL (ATT32094) over base colours.
Top surfaces 'Aviattic' Linen Weave Effect (ATT32236) over base colours.
Individual marking from the ‘SuperScale’ WW1 Nieuport 28C-1 (MS320243) set.
Final sealing coat of 'Alclad' Light Sheen (ALC-311) lacquer.

Now I'll need apply weathering before adding details, such as the retaining strap for the engine cowl and ring supports for the front of the machine gun cooling jackets.
Then it'll be pre-rigging and start the construction,

Mike

Mike do you need to fill around the seams of that linen cloth decal to hide them or is that not an issue because of the thinness of the decal?

Are the stripes on the cowl decals or painted on?

Hi Rob,
The linen effect decals are cut as accurately as possible to butt up to each other with no overlap.
The decals are transparent and any edge over lap will double the thickness of the decal and it will show as a darker seam.

CodyCoyote,
The cowl stripes are decals and part of the set.
However they are not easy to apply as they come as separate stripes and some are in two halves, so aligning them and getting equal spacing is not easy,

Mike

Hi all,
I've applied the 'Flory Models' Dark Dirt fine clay wash.
Most will be removed to leave the desired weathered look,

Hi all,
Most of the clay wash has been removed to leave subtle dirt weathering.
'AK Interactive' Kerosene wash (AK2039) and Engine Oil (AK2019) applied around filler cap and on underside of fuselage, rear of engine cowl..
'Tamiya' Weather Master Set A (Mud) and Set D (Engine Oil) sponged to the engine cowl, underside of lower wings and fuselage.

Now to create the engine cowl retainer band and forward support rings for both machine guns,

Mike

Hi all,
Just a few tweaks to the fuselage and weapons.
The engine cowl was secured to the fuselage with a metal strap around the rear edge of the cowl.
To represent this strap, I used a strip of ‘Bare-Metal’ Matte Aluminium self-adhesive foil.
This was then covered with 'Flory Models' Dark Dirt clay wash, to dirty it up, then sealed with 'Alclad' Light Sheen lacquer (AL-311).

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

In-flight the main fuel tank was pressurised by a 'Baden' type venturi, which was connected to the tank by an air pipe.
This was represented by drilling into the venturi and fuselage and adding 0.3 mm 'PlusModels' lead wire.
The wire inside the venturi was painted Brass and the rest with 'Tamiya' Rubber Black (XF85).

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

Both machine guns had elliptical blast deflectors, fitted below the muzzles and these are not represented on the replacement ’GasPatch’ weapons.
The two machine guns were fixed to a mounting under the breach block and also supported at the fuselage by clamping rings around the front of their cooling jackets.

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

The blast deflectors were cut and shaped from 0.2 mm thick plastic card and CA glued to the weapons.
The rear gun mounts were made from 0.4 mm and 0.2 mm diameter Nickel-Silver tubes. The front mounts were also pinned to the fuselage with 0.3 mm tube.
The front clamping rings were cut from 0.2 mm thick plastic card and CA glued to the cooling jackets.

Hi all,
I've started on the pre-rigging, which for this model is all on the lower wings and fuselage.
This is mainly because of the tight proximately of the anchor points at the wing roots for the twin flying wires.
All done using, for a change, ‘Maxima’ Chameleon mono-filament 0.12 mm diameter.
The tubing is 0.5 mm diameter that was pre-blackened using 'Blacken-It' solution.
I still have the rudder, undercarriage and under fuselage rigging to do before the upper wing can be fitted,

Mike

Hi Rob,
Normally I use 'Steelon' mono-filament.
However, for a change I used ‘Maxima’ Chameleon mono-filament 0.12 mm diameter.
What you see is the colour of the line,

Hi all,
Upper wing fitted.
Although the outer struts located fully, the fuselage cabane struts were slightly clear of the underside of the upper wing.
However, a bit of pressure and CA adhesive did the trick.
Also the rigging, which is the next stage, will hold the wings together,

Mike

Hi all,
The wing rigging is now complete, except for the flying wire inserts.
These I'll try to do later.
Also the undercarriage has been pre-rigged, but left loose so as not to distort the struts.
These bracing lines will be final fitted and tension once the undercarriage has been fitted.
These bracing wires were all attached, between the struts, to a rigging ring.
The two outer wires are attached to midway along the leading edge of the lower wings ,

Mike
