Zac... I used to think I had the most crowded model desk in the southern hemisphere but you just won the trophy!

All this, plus a cat!

This image has really made my day!

cheers

Gotta love cats.  Does he/she bother the models?
He doesn't, but Sasha just managed to make some landing gear mods on another work in progress!!

Great progress Marc!

Thanks Kevin and Zac!  Those photos may come in handy someday... ::)

I started the "priming, sanding, filling, sanding and priming again" process.  You can see the raw edges and bits of schmutz after the first primer run.  Also, steps were manifested on the lower fuselage sides.  After some putty and sanding, though...the last couple of shots show it's pretty much ready for color.  I'm treating this just like a plastic model but just being a bit more gentle with the sanding process.

The only thing that didn't go to plan was that my embossing from the back side needs to be heavier as you can barely see the stab/elevator/rudder lines.  I'll need to go over the wings before I skin them if I want them a little more pronounced.

Looks nice, though!  Can't wait to start spraying.  I think I'll mix some turquoise for the lower parts tonight and maybe give it a spray!  We'll see.

Thanks for looking,
Dan

What's New / Re: LukGraph 1/32 BE.2c coming late January 2022

I sense with the fast turnaround of the new releases of  1/32 WWI airplanes, Lukgraph is taking the leading post and the other competing companies are just missing the train. I just over one-year Lukgraph released 3 or 4 plus kits, which is a milestone for a resin small company. Unfortunately, they are not affordable and produced at a premium price for the elite modeling market. I really hope that  is not a deterrent to these competing companies in producing the same kit ( injected plastic)  but a cheaper price and  outstanding quality

Received mine here in NZ today. Beautifully presented kit/contents. Rigging diagrams are very comprehensive but think I'll feel like a fish stuck in a net when I get amongst it all!

It was surely a good decision. You have completed a spectacular model. The wooden fuselage is especially attractive. Congratulations!

Calvin and Hobbes had some great model-related strips!
