Magnificent start on this little beauty, Andreas!  Your nerves certainly don't show here.  I hope things settle down for you at work soon, my friend.  I can't imagine any task being too much for you to handle.

Thanks Rick & Mark,

Progressing... the painting has been completed, I went for a dark grey for the cowling in the end. I presume the photo of the aircraft they had suggested a dark painted PC10 but could easily have been a dark grey (as opposed to the standard mid grey). Looks ok anyway. I added a little chipping with a fine brush, then added all the detail paint before glossing with Alclad Aqua Gloss (airbrushed).

The mottling looks good I think. Although it looks very different depending on the light source - you can hardly see it in some lights but a bit over done in others!

The decals went on very nicely as usual with Wingnuts. Gently rubbed on and then a blast with the hairdryer to nestle it down. I didnít use any decal solutions. The wing tapes got a gentle sand to highlight.

Thanks for looking in,

Might have been my E.II buuld you saw the gel pen. Certainly males life easier and you've done a great job.

Thank you very much, Ondra!

All your words proof again what a great place this is here.

Meanwhile I painted the interior. I took the opportunity to replicate the typical Fokker metal with a gel pen which worked perfectly. I cannot remember where I read this idea here on this forum, but thanks for the hint, it's really a simple technique.

For the wooden parts I switched from oils to acrylics. Worked fine too and dried within hours.

Here's a test fit of the cockpit component. I am afraid it needs some sanding to fit between the fuselage halves...

As this is a pure fun build, I thought about using the kit's Oberursel U. I. But then I changed my mind and built up a spare Oberursel from Wingnut Wings.

Now on to the seatbelts...
best regards

I guess a lack of knowledge of HGW stuff hasn't helped. I get the oversizing, but design is still to be desired and I'd expect better - maybe I'm bei g too picky!

Anyway, made a start on painting the wood last night. Will get some piccies this evening.

Now this is realy something else.!! also nice photography ..
Hello Manni:

The weathering and aging you have done is truly amazing.  As mentioned, the imagination and creativity and ability to translate that into a weathered model is a work of modeling art.  As Lance mentioned, the birds nest is a nice touch, complete with eggs yet!  Looking forward to seeing what else you can come up with.  An intersting concept for a diorama to say/write the least.
