WNW Albatros D.V 'Jasta V'
« on: September 10, 2019, 09:14:46 AM »
Here is my 3rd Wingnut Wings Albatros builds. Finished in the markings or Richard Flasher of Jasta V from the Trilogy boxing.
I added lead foil belts & HGW buckles to the seat, added pipes & control cables to the cockpit. Scratch built the throttle on the control stick grip.
Added to the engine, Taurus spark plugs & valve springs. Added spark plug wires, various pipes, drains, fuel lines & throttle linkage.
Added on the lower fuselage, photo etch access hatches & a fuel tank drain. Added rigging & control cables from transparent thread colored with a silver sharpie.
Turnbuckles are simulated with micro brass tubing. Added the flare gun & field installed port on the L/H fuselage
Painted with Xtracolor enamels. Pre shaded the ribs on the wings. Weathered using washes & pastels.
Thanks for looking & all comments welcome.
Larry

A beauty. I especially like your undercarriage "weathering".

I agree with Prez - the details of the engine are simply wonderful. The overall finish is also of the highest order. I do like the personal markings.
