Lublin R.XIIIG (1/32, Lukgraph)
« on: May 06, 2020, 05:35:17 AM »
Having completed the WNW Pup I can finally fulfil my promise and join this GB.
So here it is, my shelfqueen, which waited a couple of months.
Lukgraph resin kit, a lovely floatplane of Polish make - Lublin R.XIIIG, dated at 1935, based at Puck Naval Base on Baltic Sea.
And I strongly hope, that this time I will work on it until it is completed.

Rembember this from a previous thread, I wondered if I lost it or it was just suspended. Very nice and exotic subject, to me.
Ciao

I just got tired of resin... But now it is a resolution. I must complete it.

I do remember this project, Przemo, a big project and certainly very complex! It will look superb when finished - especially in your hands! Regards, Marc.

Nice work on the internals.
I find that resin does get tedious after a while.

Absolutely right, Kent. But this time I really want to complete this build, getting tired of it or not.

The interior basically complete. I have replaced the spare ammo drums with WNW plastic ones, they are a tad too large but it will not be so visible after closing the fuselage.

Thank you, Marc

More progress, the fuselage closed, the CA glue in the seams is curing. And fun with Skoda-Wright engine is begun.

Lovely work Przemo.  That is a very clean and attractive cockpit.  This is a nice-looking aircraft to my eye, and I am looking forward to seeing this model continue to come to life under your skilled hands. 

Best regards,

Bob

More fun on the engine. The body with the push rods assembled. Cleaning of intake and exhaust pipes in progress.

More progress on the fuselage. The joint is filled and sanded, carburettor and control rod fairing mounted. Some more filling and geometry correction underway, also on the fin and Townend ring.

And for an even better motivation I have purchased a great original painting by Robert Firszt with two Lublins over their Puck home.
