I know you're a stickler for accuracy so I'm surprised by the change in fuselage colors as they seem pretty dramatic. Is this because no accurate data exists for the actual colors used?

Hi all,
The rudder, ailerons and upper wing have now been fitted.
All pre-rigging was also put in place.

However, previously when test fitting the upper wing, I found that the kit supplied 3D printed cabane side support struts were too short.
When located, they were approximately 1.0 mm clear of the fuselage.
So I modified the fuselage cabane strut assembly to lower the upper wing slightly to allow the struts to locate fully.
Now, with the upper wing fitted, I found that the struts were still too short.
Therefore, I decide to discard the kit supplied struts and create replacement struts.
These were made from 1.2 mm diameter Brass tube, formed into an airfoil profile and with internal 0.3 mm diameter Brass locating rods.

Onward upward,

Mike

Hi CC,
I decided to change the green colours loosely based on the following research.
Here's two charts (slight differences) which shows what the colours were thought to be.
Research carried out by author Marc Chassard.
He spent a long time researching camouflage colours of French WW1 aircraft.

Looks fantastic!

I have been meaning to post these for a while in relation to our conversation on painting doped fabric but the archaic forum tools are definitely a big dissuasion.

These are from the Owl's Head Transportation Museum.

The older I get, the more I realize I don't need to be Han, Luke or Leia. I'm just happy to be rebel scum...
