Hi all,
Just a few updates.
The undercarriage assembly is fitted and the bracing wires final rigged.
That includes the bracing wire from the forward undercarriage struts to the leading edge of the lower wings.
Also the cross bracing wires under the fuselage to the rear of the engine cowl.
The fin bracing wire has been add and the rudder control lines fitted.
Finally the pilot figure from ‘Wings Cockpit Figures’ leaning pilot 1915-16 (LSK 04B) has been assembled, ready for painting,

Mike

Hi all,
A couple more updates.
The three rectangular access panels, located forward on the fuselage, were fitted witted ring type fasteners.
These were made by coiling 0.2 mm lead wire ('PlusModels') around a 0.8 mm drill shank.
The removed coil of wire was then cut through and the separated rings flatted and secured in position with CA adhesive.

The windscreen is the photo-etch version from the ‘PART’ Nieuport 28c1 (S32-033) set.
It was annealed over a flame then bent to shape and airbrushed white.
The acetate windscreen transparency was cut out and secured to the windscreen using 'Microscale' Krystal Clear (PVA).
The windscreen was secured to the fuselage using the same adhesive.

Hi all,
The Nieuport 28, like some other French built aircraft, had wood strip infills between the four pairs of flying wires.
These infills were held in place between the wires by straps that wrapped around the wires and infills.
To represent these wood infills I cut thin strips of 0.2 mm plastic card.
These were covered with ‘Aviattic’ Wood Grain (ATT32235) decal, which was conformed around the plastic strips with 'Tamiya' X20A thinners.
I cut a five lengths of ‘Bare-Metal’ Matte Aluminium foil of 0.5 mm width
These were secured to the infill strip using thin CA adhesive (adhesive on foil backing didn't hold well).
The infill strip was laid onto and between the flying wires and the foil strips pushed around the infill to hold it in position.
Finally thin CA adhesive was 'flowed' along the flying wires to secure them against the infill strip.

Mike

Hi all,
The pilot figure is finished and will be leaning against the aircraft, hence the pose.
Brush painted using 'Tamiya' and 'AK Interactive' acrylics.
Metal fittings 'Mr. Colour' Stainless Steel (213) and Brass (219).
Dust and oil stain is 'Tamiya' Weathering Master Sets A and D.

This will be my last post for this model as I'm awaiting delivery of the display case and propeller.

Thanks to those who followed this build and for the encouraging comments.
I'll post the completed photographs soon,

Mike
