Mike, your attention to details like this absolutely amazes me. How do you identify this things, particularly the peculiarities of specific planes?

It's gotta be some kind of black magic innit? It's just not humanly possible. But if bagger's gonna perform witchcraft, beyond human perception nor understanding on any inanimate object, it might as well be the Bristol Scout! The Warlock chooses wisely.

Hi all,
The Gnome Lambda Rotary engine is complete, including 0.4 mm diameter Brass tubes with 0.2 mm diameter copper wire spark plug leads.
I cut away the kit spark plugs and drilled holes into the cylinders to mount the plugs.
The engine was then fitted to the engine bulkhead and the cowl fitted over the engine.
I had to slightly sand the valve levers on the top of each cylinder to allow the cowl to fit, as they were restricting the fit of the cowl.
Due to the size of the opening in the engine cowl being so small, very little of the engine can be seen.

Now it's on to external pre-rigging,

Mike

Hi all,
As I'm going to apply the 'Aviattic' CDL decals (clear backed) to the model, I primed with a white primer (Tamiya).
The primer was then polished using the 'Flory Models' green/white polishing stick.
This saves having to gloss clear coat before the decals.
It also allows for wearing away primer from some raised detail and a precursor to pre-shading.

So next up is pre-shading and internal structure,

Mike

Hi all,
Thought I'd try something different for pre-shading.
The Bristol Scout in particular shows well defined internal structure through the Clear Doped Linen covering.
Rather than trying to represent this by the usual airbrushing, I though of using decal instead.
I've applied three different thicknesses of black decal stripes from the 'Xtradecal' Parallel stripes black (XPS1) set.
These take as long to apply as masking then airbrushing would.
The idea is to over spray the decals with white to fade them back but leave them defined.
The CDL decal will then be applied to cover the surfaces.
We'll see,

Mike

I think I'm starting to suffer withdrawl syndrome. I follow this thread religiously, and if it goes a few days without a post I start to get jittery. LOL Can't wait to see how the CDL looks on those wings, Much appreciate you bringing us along for the ride all these years.

Hi all,
I've had work done to my home, so haven't been able to model much the last week or so.
However, I'm back onto the Scout now and continuing the underside decals for pre-shading.
The upper wing, ailerons and tailplane/elevator are done.
Once I receive more 'Xtradecal' stripes, I can complete the lower wings and fuselage,

Mike

Hi all,
While I wait for more decals I thought I'd hit the two figures.
Both are from 'Copper State Models' to accompany their Bristol Scout,

Hi all,
A couple of updates.
As the mechanic figure will be refueling the aircraft from a container, I needed to make a funnel.
This was made from 0.3 mm thick plastic card and a piece of stretch sprue for the pipe.
painted with 'Mr. Colour' Stainless Steel (213) with 'Tamiya' Clear Yellow (X24) inside to represent fuel.
Two spare label decals were applied from my 'spares' box.

The propeller is a laminated wood propeller made by Alexey Belov at 'Proper Plane'.

Gorgeous attention to detail yet again, Mike. I'm always so impressed with your modeling abilities!

Hi all,
Well, the decal pre-shading test didn't turn out too bad I guess.

Airbrush primed with 'AK Interactive' White primer (AK759).
Polished with a 'Flory Models' Green polishing stick.
Airbrushed with 'Alclad' Aqua Gloss 600.
Pre-shade decals applied using 'Xtradecal' Parallel stripes black set (XPS1).
Light coat of 'AK Interactive' White primer (AK759) airbrush to fade back the decals.
Airbrushed with 'Alclad' Aqua Gloss 600 as a sealing coat.
'Ghost' roundels airbrushed on underside of upper wing using tracing paper masks (don't stick and lift decals).
Light coat of 'AK Interactive' White primer (AK759) airbrush to fade back the roundels.
Airbrushed with 'Alclad' Aqua Gloss 600 as a sealing coat.
‘Aviattic’ Bleached CDL (clear backed) (ATT32044) decals applied (cut to shape).
Kit supplied decals applied (serial number made from ‘Xtradecal’ RAF letters and numbers set (X32021).
NOTE: All decals applied with added PVA adhesine in the decal water (helps to stick the decals down without, if any, silvering)
All of this still needs weathering, detail painting and final light sheen final coat (to lessen the gloss).

Hi all,
The surfaces were airbrushed with 'Alclad' Light Sheen (ALC-311), which give enough 'grip' for the clay wash.
'Flory Models' clay wash (Dark Dirt) was then brush heavily over the model.
Next up is to remove the wash with slightly dampened kitchen absorbent paper, to achieve the desired weathering effect,

Hi all,
The clay wash has been removed to give the effect of a well used Bristol Scout.
A final sealing coat of 'Alclad' Light Sheen (ALC-311) was airbrushed to seal it all,

Hi all,
Just a quick update.
The landing gear struts were wrapped in linen to protect them and strengthen them against splitting.
I chose the apply the 'Aviattic' CDL decal to the struts, not that you can see much of it.
I also dirtied the gear using the 'Flory Models' Dark Dirt wash.
Now onto pre-rigging,

Mike

The attention to detail on something like the underside of the upper wing to give the impression of transparency is WOW! I can't imagine how hard it would be for me to wrap the struts with overlapping strips of decal. I found it hard just applying meatballs on Zeros.

Hi all,
Update on the Scout build.
I've pre-rigged the assembly and upper wing.
For this model I've not used tubing to secure the lines to the turnbuckles.
Instead I looped the lines through the turnbuckles the twisted the line and secured it together using thin CA adhesive.
I've used the 'Gaspatch' 1:48th scale metal turnbuckles (Type B) for most of the rigging.
These better represent the way the turnbuckles were attached to pivot on their mounting brackets.
Some double ended (Type C) turnbuckles are used for flight control cables.

Now it's onto fitting the upper wing,

Mike
