Title: Show us your Siemens-Schuckert D.III
Post by: Bughunter on October 23, 2018, 04:29:07 AM
Siemens-Schuckert D.III

I can't believe it - no thread of the famous Siemens-Schuckert D.III yet?
So I start it with my recently finished model.

This is, what Wikipedia tells us about the original single seat fighter (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siemens-Schuckert_D.III).

As far as I know there are some kits of this type available:
The old Eduard kit in 1/48 (the first model of that company? Order number 8001)
- the new 1/48 Eduard kit from 2014,
- a Flashback kit 1/48
- a Roden kit in 1/32
and some more in 1/72 Toyo, Pegasus, Eastern Express, CMR ...

Now the pictures of my Siemens-Schuckert D.III in 1/48:

She's absolutely gorgeous, Frank!  It's really hard to pull off a solid black airframe effectively, but you've done it.  Very smooth.  I love it!
Cheers,
Bud

Spectacular beginning to a new thread on this subject.  Done masterfully Frank.

Thought I'd add mine from two years ago. 1:32 Scale from Roden, Pheon Decals, hand carved prop and Aviattic's resin engine on the side. An excellent Kit with just a few minor corrections required.

Lance, that's a nice aircraft!
And two things I noticed:

And Juan and Bud: Thank you for your words about my work!

Frank and Lance,
Both of your Models are stunners. What has been done in 1/48th scale with the Eduard kit by Frank is incredible. What Has been accomplished by Lance with the Roden kit is equally incredible.

I should have included that I used the Bren Gun 1:32 Scale Photo Etch Set for mine, an outstanding product in my experience. The lower fuselage cowling with the vents make it worthwhile alone!
Cheers,
Lance

Beautiful, Petrov! (And Pheon Decals really offer a beautiful set of options, don't they?!)

Thx rhwinter/RAGIII!

Though I have a number of WNW kits finished, for some reason this Roden SSDIII remains my favorite build.

I have another in the stash along with a convo kit to make it an early version that I hope to tackle one day....

   That is really lovely work. Like you this Kit is one of my favorites and I plan to do another soon, probably in one of the black schemes like this. Thanks for adding this to the Thread, a joy to view!
Cheers,
Lance

I figured it was time to Post this one here. Roden SSW DIII 1/32nd scale. Ernst Udet: Jasta 4.  Probably only flown once or twice and not in combat.
