Title: 1/72 Roden Felixstowe F.2a
Post by: pustota on May 05, 2022, 02:15:03 AM
Good day.
I will start building a flying ship. The model has been with me since 2006... the p.h. fret and AIMS decals.
I just wanted to put it all together and put it on the shelf, a
beautiful, colorful boat. But! Out of nowhere, "Wingnut wings" released his Felixstowe and I realized that Roden's model's interior is not good at all. Even with Part photo etched.
And I began to be smart with  the boat's skeleton. The white pieces are partitions.
Here's what happened tonight:

I will watch this with great pleasure and interest. Felixstowe flyng boats were always close to my heart. I have 3 of them in my collection, two Rodens and one WNW. Unfortunately, I could not correct all the errors on my Roden's ones because WNW was not yet available when I built them. Good luck with your build!

This is one of those types that fascinates me, and yet I have no desire to own (let alone build!) one, so I'm interested to follow along. A great start!

Good day.
Made, painted and installed the base for plank flooring in the hold.

Good day. Finished painting and installing the deck. It was not easy to understand, decipher and depict a deck of three levels. The main structure of the hold is almost finished - there is stairs, one transverse beam and a wooden "slide" missing. 
I go further.

Good day.
Yes i'll live the top of the fuselage semi-open.
Additions here, as I said, these are two etchings: "Part" and "Brengan", in both sets very few details for the hold.
80 percent of what I made was all Evergreen plastic sheets and sticks.
 The construction of the hold is completed, the next stage is stretching in the hold.
Thank you.

That's a great idea using masking tape to replicate wood planking. Thanks, I will remember that.

Post by: lone modeller on May 30, 2022, 05:51:46 AM
That interior is a model in its own right worthy of display. The wood planking on the hull is also an extremely good novel idea. This will be a must see model when it is finished - and in the True Scale too.

Wonderful work as usual, pustota, the idea of using masking tape to simulate the planking is great, my concern would be that, being it a low tack tape, it could detach after some time, I imagine you have a plan to properly seal it... How do you think to do that?

Post by: pustota on May 30, 2022, 07:53:33 PM
My plan is this: after the tape has been applied all over, I will apply a coat of undiluted  matt clearcoat, than the oil and than enother matt clearcoat. I houpe it works.

The oil dried up, covered with a layer of matte varnish (Vallejo), this is the final look. The fuselage is closed for a while from dust, and I turn to the wings.
Thank you.

Yes it's Roden's decals, and I had lucky with them.
I used a decal medium and decal fix from Vallejo.
So far so good...
Title: Re: 1/72 Roden Felixstowe F.2a
Post by: malaula on June 20, 2022, 12:03:42 AM
I never had issues with the late Roden decals...the glossy type seems to work quite good.
The Felixstowe in my oppinion is one of the best Roden kits.
Most important when fixing the wings is to take care of the slight dyhedral of the outer panels of the upperwing to prevent sagging...
the engine support struts are a bit tricky,too.

Title: Re: 1/72 Roden Felixstowe F.2a
Post by: pustota on June 20, 2022, 12:37:45 AM
Thank you Malaula.
I don't think that my decals is from the late stash. I bought that kit back in 2006...
Thank you about warning about the wings mounting.

Good day. The fuselage was covered with masks and painted in the main color. The next step will be applying parts from AISM. Having studied in detail (as far as possible) the photo of the original, I found some inaccuracies in the Roden's instruction:
1. The cockade was not on the lower surface of the upper wings.
2. There were no patterns on the floats
3. Only after the second redan the color was red, before it everything was unpainted, varnished with wood.
 4. The drawing in the area of ​​the machine gun ports on both sides of the fuselage is not correct.
Something like that.

Love how this one is shaping up - such an inspiring thread.

May I ask what you are thinning your 'Model air' paint with (I'm continually having trouble with it drying in the airbrush. At the moment I'm using distilled water and adding some Vallejo glaze medium or retarder)  :-\

Title: Re: 1/72 Roden Felixstowe F.2a
Post by: pustota on June 30, 2022, 04:25:49 PM
Yes, you are absolutely right.
I thin this (modelAir) paint 1:2 with the original Vallejo thinner. It takes some getting used to... That paint much different from Tamiya's acrylics.

Good day. Started applying decals. Either the decal is old (about 10 years old), or the decal is of poor quality, I don't know. The decal is very hard and brittle. It crumbles to pieces all the way. Here is such a confusion.

This is a complicated aircraft to build in this scale. Your detailing is great and so is the weathering. Great job on the woodplanking. Very clever to use the Tamiya tape. It is very convincing!

I've been watching the build of your engines closely as I need to build 4 of them from WNW sprues. They look the part!
