Looking good!

Topnotch results, as ever Mike. Nice to see a French bird getting built.

Thanks for the excelent build log/tutorial.

Hi all - just a minor update, the gun bay has been detailed. I foolishly followed the CMK instructions and installed the ammo boxes with their length running fore to aft, which I thought about afterwards and worked out after the fact was wrong; they needed to be rotated 90 degrees to run lengthwise (which makes sense). I destroyed much of the edges of the bay trying to remove them. I then needed to rebuild the edges of the bays, which I tried to do by cutting pieces off the spare bay. It's far from perfect, but it will do. In the bay itself, I added ammo chutes from strip plastic, wiring from fuse wire, and breech details and fastener attachment points from the ends of etched rigging turnbuckles. 

In the end, a tad bittersweet and entirely preventable if I hadn't just blindly followed the instructions... sigh!

A bit more completed tonight!

I got the rest of the rigging on and the inverted-V cabanes.  I also put on a little attachment on the top of the mid section leading edge which will have some tubing coming from it soon.  I also got the ailerons all squared away and attached.  Next will be some more center section detail then onto attaching the four wing panels!  Holy Cow...

I like the W29 and in 1/48th, it will be an ambitious project.  I have never built a 1/48th vac and do not see any in my future.

I will have some more photos of the Dh-6 tomorrow.  Tech Support was very tired today and unable to down load the photos. 

Does anyone have the detail sheet on the Blue Rider sheet P9?  I found the decal sheet but am not sure where the white strip and tail markings go.

I'll see what I can put together, thousands of photos to review...

Looks great so far, Dennis, this is going to be another nifty addition to your collection.

I was rummaging around among stuff in the garage today and found the Koster Fok. D.VIII I mentioned before, plus two more vacs I'd forgotten I had; a 1:48 Roland D.II, and an ambitious Hansa-Brandenburg W.29, both from unknown manufacturers. You may have inspired me to actually start one of them... one of these days :)

Hey Dave, just seen your post.

I have a few bits and pieces left over from my 9407 build. None of the big roundels, but you said you've got them covered. I have the A995 serials and the B5 markings for the 70 Sqdn machine. Also the tail flashes and small roundels but these are not printed very well, poor colour and a little eccentric.

If you want these pm me your address details and I'll get them in the post to you.

Hi all,
I've weathered the paintwork.
Airbrushed thinned 'Tamiya' Smoke (X19).
Airbrushed 'Alclad' Light Sheen (ALC311).
Applied 'Flory Models' Dark Dirt fine clay wash.
Removed the wash to leave slight staining.
Airbrush sealing coat of 'Alclad' Light Sheen (ALC311).

Now it's onto pre-rigging before assembly,

Hi Dave, two options come to mind if no one can help.

1) Aims makes roundels and can be purchased from Hannants

2) A more expensive but beautiful option are the sets by Aviattic.

Sorry I cannot help you out
