Spectacular engine, Gary!  Very realistic!
Cheers,

I agree with Bud of course!

UFAG, Bud and Rick - glad you like it! I'm part way through the cockpit interior and hope to post some pics soon. I've also got a 21cm WW1 Morser by Takom that needs a fair bit of detail added....but that's another story :-)
Cheers,
Gary

Working concurrently on the "Harry Tate", I've been trying to paint some of the details and smaller bits before commencing construction of the sub-assemblies, so the following pics are are summary of some of the progress so far. Thanks for looking  :)

Thanks PrzemoL! And he's a few bits from the Roland...

I used a trick learned on this forum for making the handles for the fuel selector valves using 0.5mm brass tubing - bending it and squeezing it.





Cheeers,
Gary

    Superb detailing Gary. The Lozenge fabric baffle you've added to the fuselage former of the D.VI is incredibly well done, a couple of more winners soon to emerge from your Model Room! BTW, have you filled the requirement for the display cabinets we discussed in Nanton?

Lance

Thanks Juan and Lance! I'm enjoying both builds and happy to be in WnW land again :)

Lance - I'll be looking into setting up the new hobby room this fall and have a couple of options for showcases, but nothing as of yet. Still trying to finish renos and get ready for our UK trip.

Cheers,
Gary

All of your details are looking terrific Gary! In particular I  like the camera, panels and the fabric baffle.

All great looking details, Gary.  I like the landing gear strut where the wood grain can be seen through the lightening holes.

RH, Rick and Ken - thanks for the kind comments. I've been helped along by investing in the Winsor & Newton series 7 brushes "000" size. Wished I'd had these earlier  8)

First Learned of those brushes about 30 years ago when taking a class on painting figures. Expensive but worth every Penny!
