Hi all
As my build of the Macchi M.5 is drawing to a close I'll be starting the next model.
This will be the resin 'Lukgraph' model of the Halberstadt D.II, Serial No:810/16 Vzfw. Erich Schutlz of the Royal Jagdstaffel 25, operating from Kanatrlarci, Macedonia in early 1917

Hi all,
Landing gear complete
I've added 0.5 mm diameter Nickel-Silver tube to represent the axle attachments to the axle fairing
Also 'EZ' white line (Heavy) around the axle ends for the suspension cords
These were weathered using 'AK Interactive' Kerosone wash (AL3029)

Now onto the pre-rigging stage of the build

Hi all
The underside of the upper wing has been pre-rigged using 'Gasspatch' 1:48th scale metal Anchor Points, 0.12mm diameter mono-filament and blackened 0.5mm diameter Brass tube
The rudder and elevators have been rigged using 'Gasspatch' 1:48th scale metal turnbuckles (Type C), 0.08mm diameter mono-filament and blackened 0.4mm diameter Brass tube
The ailerons have been pre-rigged 0.08mm diameter mono-filament

Next is fitting the upper wing

I really like the color transition on the upper wing surfaces. Well done.

That's a very nice looking bird! Did you say you heat the filament to shrink it to tension?


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...

Hi Rick,
Yes.
Mono-filament will shrink when heat is applied close and along the length of the line.
I use an electricians soldering iron, obviously avoiding model surfaces and keeping it moving all of the time.
Not always needed but is good to tighten any fully rigged lines that are a bit too slack,

Mike

Hi all,
This the pilot figure from 'Aviattic.
I replaced the head from my 'spares', as the original seemed too small.
Painted with 'Tamiya', 'AK Interactive' and Citadel paints.
Weathered with 'Flory Models' clay wash (Dark Dirt) and 'Tamiya' Weathering Master (Set D -Oil Stain) and (Set A - Mud).

Hi all,
The propeller is finished.
The kit propeller was replaced with a 'Niendorf' wood laminated version from 'Proper Plane.
The company logo decals are from a spare sheet from a Wingnut Wings kit.
I've added the propeller back plate cut from 0.3mm thick plastic card, as it is not supplied in the kit,

Mike

The mechanic's boots look comfortable enough to have belonged to Kemmerich

Scandalous! Also, how did you get the lines on the propeller laminate so nice? That looks ridiculously tricky to pull off? Masking fluid?

Hi Rick,
That's how the propeller is on arrival.
Alexey Belov at 'Proper Plane' makes his propellers from real and stained wood lamination's and supplies resin cast hub plates of the correct type
He makes the propellers from different wood types and colours.
All you need to do, if required, is to further stain the propellers and add the manufacturers logo decals.

They do say that the grass is always greener under your plane! Lovely! The DII always does a great job of highlighting the difference between the Halberstadt and Albatros tail designs...
