First class work going on here - that is a super assembly with a wonderful contrast between the wood and other parts.

So, after months of ridiculous detailing, the 'Dreidekker' build is finally getting somewhere...



Parts ready for assembly.



Lowr wing fitted.



Middle wing fitted, incl. the top cover.



Top wing test fitting.



It's beginning to look like a little 'Fokker'

Beautiful work!

What was your technique for painting the metal components? They look great  :D

Cheers,

Thank you RAGIII & Brad!

I wanted to find a way to achieve a decent metal surface, without having to go into elaborate painting techniques.
After some trials this is the procedure I ended up using:

First a layer of Tamiya XF-16 flat aluminium. Pattern is them made with a sharpie silver pen doing irregular 'swirls'.
Everything is then being brought together with some AK True Metal Aluminium wax paint, applied very sparingly,
not to cover up the pattern. Finally a coat of future to protect the surface and to give it a shiny appearance.
It may sound complicated, but it really isn't. It ended up being 'a walk in the park'.

Kent,
    What an inspiration this project is, your work and the results are mind blowing at the very least! It's getting close to complete, and what a spectacular model it's going to be! Perhaps a little premature, but my compliments on some outstanding model building. 8) 8) 8) 8)
Cheers,
Lance

Thank you for your kind words Gentlemen, I really appreciate it!

Well the learning curve has most certainly been steep!
I wasn't sure if this would be doable at all. It started out being little more than a test of what
is possible using what I'm comfortable with, styrene & resin.
It's definitely not perfect, but I'm very happy with the result.

It's supposed look like a 1/32 Fokker 'dreidekker' without canvas, and it absolutely does  ;)

Cheers: Kent
